The University of Guayaquil Choir, founded in 1972 by professor Enrique Gil Calderon (†), is an institution dedicated to improving the musical culture of all citizens, featuring and cherishing different cultural traditions, and contributing to the dissemination of national and universal musical values.

Currently, the choir is directed by Fernando Gil Estrada, Professor of Fine Arts with a specialisation in choral conducting. He is also the director of the Music Institute at the University of Guayaquil. He has taught workshops on Ecuador and Latin American music in Europe and South America.
