Marcel Castro-Lima is a Brazilian composer and conductor. His music moves comfortably between traditional writing, deeply rooted in Brazilian styles, and experimental practices involving improvisation, intertextuality, instruction-based pieces, and open forms. He has received prizes for his orchestral pieces such as Diptych: Two Churches of Saint Francis of Assissi, Academic Fantasy, and Overture for the Twelve Prophets of Aleijadinho. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of North Texas.
