Catherine Samartin


Cuban-American soprano, Catherine Antonia Samartin, is described as a passionate, and expressive performer with her dance, modeling, and stage/film-acting background adding a higher level of artistry and depth to each performance. 

Most recently, she sang the principal role of Murderess - Charlotte Corday, in the West Coast premier of Girondines with Mission Opera. Other operatic roles consist of Juliette in Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette with Valley Opera and Performing Arts, Musetta - La Boheme, Gilda - Rigoletto, Countess Almaviva - Le Nozze di Figaro, and Donna Anna - Don Giovanni, in Berlin and most recently in Los Angeles. Alongside her operatic roles, she has had opportunity to perform major works including Stabat Matter Op. 58 - Dvorak, Symphony No. 2 Op. 14 - Shostakovich, and appeared as the Primary Soprano Soloist in Requiem D Minor K. 626 - Mozart, Magnificat in D Major BWV 243 - Bach, and Messiah HWV 56 - Handel.

Alongside her passion for music, she volunteers her time with Young Women's Task Force of Los Angeles working with homeless shelters assisting women with children, and managed a private scholarship fund supporting aspiring young musicians throughout Los Angeles. She hopes to one day continue her philanthropic efforts by combining her love of giving back to her community and music, with her own afterschool music program catered towards the inner city high schools of Los Angeles, her hometown.
