Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, tenor Joachim Luis has enjoyed performing in Chicago since 2007. He was last seen on stage in April 2019 in his Chicago Opera Theater debut as Tashtego in Moby Dick. Past roles include: Ernesto (Don Pasquale), Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Count Almaviva (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Don Basilio/Don Curzio (Le nozze di Figaro), Morales/Remendado (Carmen), Prince Ramiro (Cenerentola), Frederick (Pirates of Penzance), Ralph Rackstraw (HMS Pinafore), Jack (Into the Woods), and Big Deal (West Side Story). Midwest/Chicago premiers include: Don Filipo in the Tagalog opera Noli me tangere; and Zhang Junrui in the Mandarin operetta Romance of the Western Chamber.

On the concert stage, solo credits include: Carmina Burana (Orff), Mozart's Requiem, Christmas Oratorio (Saint-Saëns), Hodie (Vaughan Williams), Der Stern von Bethlehem (Rheinberger), and Handel's Messiah. A sought after choral singer, Joachim has performed and soloed with numerous Chicago groups: Bella Voce, Chicago Choral Artists, William Ferris Chorale, Chicago Bach Ensemble, Cantate, Constellation Men's Ensemble, Vocality, and Hot Commodity.

As an arranger, Joachim received his first professional orchestral credit for the Floating Opera Company's production of Don Giovanni in February 2016. His choral a cappella arrangements have been sung by Constellation Men's Ensemble and the Santa Fe Desert Chorale.

Joachim received a Bachelor of Music Education from San Francisco State University in 2009, and a Master of Music in Classical Voice at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in 2009.
