This is me

I am a Puerto Rican soprano, active performer of concerts and operas ranging from the traditional to the contemporary. I am also an advocate of the Latin-American and Iberian Art Song repertoire, and a proponent of contemporary vocal works as well. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to premier many vocal works, from well-established and up-and-coming composers.


I earned a BA in Literature and Languages from the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in Puerto Rico; and, both a BA and an MM in Vocal Performance, from The Boston Conservatory. I have sung in important stages, including the world-renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA, Boston Symphony Hall in Boston, MA, and The Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin, TX; also, at the Tanglewood Festival in Boston, MA.


Moreover, I am a voice teacher, the regional director and early childhood music teacher for Ladybug Music ATX and, co-creator and co-producer of the children's music project: Canciones, raíces y alas, writing original, family-friendly music, in Spanish.
