LUISAMARIA HERNANDEZ is a Dominican American soprano vocalist and storyteller based in Boston. Her commitment to community building and connection has made curated recitals, operas, and writing key parts of her art making. Luisamaria has made Latin American, Caribbean, and Spanish art music the center of her storytelling and performance practice. Her librettist debut was in 2022 in the premiere of “Prisoner of Mercy” which she wrote and produced. A workshop of “POM” will occur in the fall of 2024 with Luisamaria portraying the role of Broken.

Luisamaria is an Artist Fellow at St. Joseph’s Home for Artisans in Boston where she performs and mentors resident artists to develop their artistry and community engagement. Her passion for exploring ways to connect has led to a variety of operatic engagements, recitals, and performance art opportunities.

Recently, she sang her debut recital as an Emerging Artist with Florida Lyric Opera and sang in “Le Damnation du Faust” with BYSO. Recital engagements in Florida, Boston, and Santo Domingo round out her season. Her experiences as a Sphinx Connect Fellow and Sistema Side-by-Side Instructor have been integral to her work as she strives to tell stories that will reach those who need it most.

Upcoming engagements in Boston and Santo Domingo will give Luisamaria the opportunity to explore her roots and commitment to storytelling as she takes a hands-on approach in the curation and creation of programs.
