Bio

Estela García-López is a pastoral musician, composer and event presenter. She has worked in various bilingual parishes in Southern California and Oregon as a music director, choir director, cantor and chorister. She earned a bachelor of arts degree in music with an emphasis in voice from California State University, Los Angeles. Her beautiful alto voice is heard on many recordings published by OCP.

Estela’s debut collection, Brille Tu Luz, created in collaboration with her husband, Rodolfo, exudes their passion for evangelizing and challenging Hispanic communities to make a difference. The 12 Scripture-based songs feature a blend of contemporary and Latin styles. The two also collaborated on Misa Santa Cecilia/Mass of Saint Cecilia, the popular bilingual Mass setting used by multicultural parishes around the US and featured in Flor y Canto, tercera edición and the Unidos en Cristo/United in Christ missal.

Their most recent collection, Cristo No Tiene Pies en el Mundo, offers an eclectic mix of eight songs that encourage us to live as examples of Christ's love. Her songs can be found in Spanish contemporary compilation albums Bendito, Bendito, with songs for praise and worship and Entre Tus Manos, with songs for comfort and healing. Both, Estela and Rodolfo, composed "Rise Up!/¡Levántate!," the bilingual theme song for the 2018 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress.

In both her career and her ministry, Estela is committed to enriching the liturgy—in both English and Spanish—through music. She offers workshops focused on music preparation for Spanish-speaking cantors and choirs.

Currently she works as music development specialist at OCP and leads the choir at Ascension Catholic Church in Portland, Oregon. She lives in Portland with her husband and their two children.
