Francisca Vanherle was born in Argentina but grew up in Belgium. She studied at the Royal Conservatorium in Brussels, where she obtained both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Vocal Arts and a diploma in Vocal Pedagogy. During this time, she worked mainly as a free-lance chorister with ensembles such as Huelgas, Il Fondamento, La Petite Bande, the Brussels Cathedral Choir and the VRT Radio Choir.
In 1997, she was granted a Fulbright Scholarship by the Commission for Educational Exchange between the USA and Belgium and Luxembourg. With this scholarship, she continued her education at the University of Texas at Austin.
Besides opera and operette, Francisca regularly sings as an oratorio soloist and in art song recitals with piano, a genre which is particularly close to her heart.
Francisca has a home base in Brussels, Belgium and in Atlanta, Georgia
