“I am honored and humbled to be serving as dean of the TCVPA, it is an opportunity to lead a great team of students and faculty and find the next stage of success,” Camacho said. T

he event also will feature special guests including Latin Grammy-nominated pianist Adonis Gonzales, and assistant professor of practice in commercial music and jazz studies, Fabio Augustinis. The program will include works by Ponce, Ruiz Armengol, Piazzolla and Marquez. 

“This concert is a musical offering from me to the students, faculty, university community and the Lubbock community,” Camacho said. “The TCVPA has been, and will continue to be, one of the main doors of the university into the community. Engaging and brining the university arts expression into the community is part of our identity and commitment.”
