Samuel Mariño, born in Caracas, Venezuela, currently lives in Paris and graduated from the Conservatoire Régional de Paris in summer 2017. In his native country he took piano lessons at the Simon Bolivar National Conservatory, studied ballet at the Teresa-Carreño Theater and sang in several choirs. He discovered his interest in opera singing and his love of Baroque music as a member of Camerata Barroca in Caracas. This was where Samuel, who has a natural soprano voice, first appeared as a male soprano. He went on to study music at the National Art University in Caracas. Samuel sang in numerous roles in operas by Monteverdi, Mozart and Handel. Since moving to Europe he has given regular concert performances in France and Spain and is studying with Nicole Fallien and Barbara Bonney. Samuel is the founder of the Teseo Ensemble for the preservation and revival of Baroque music, which will give its first concert in October this year.
