Acclaimed American tenor Gabriel Silva and international recording star, composer and Emmy Award-winner Sue Ann Pinner will unite their sensational voices in an uplifting and inspirational concert of popular and classical music on Tuesday, Feb. 19.

This will be El Dorado County Community Concert Association’s fourth concert in its six 2012-13 concert series.

Silva was raised in Placerville, studied on a full scholarship for his bachelor’s degree from University of California, Irvine, and received his master of music in vocal arts from University of Southern California where he was awarded the Jeanette MacDonald Operetta Scholarship and a teaching assistantship in voice.

Silva’s voice has been described as “a rich tenor sound … sometimes a gentle stream that comforts, and other times a raging torrent” and a “voice that is striking and immediate.”

He has performed internationally in Tel Aviv, Israel with the New Israeli Opera Studio; in Austria at the Palais Theatre, and in Dubrovnic, Hvar, and Korčula, Croatia; and from Vienna to Broadway with the International Vocal Institute.

He has enthralled audiences in the title role of Werther with the Los Angeles Orchestra, Des Grieux in Auber’s “Manon Lescaut” with the Lyric Opera of Los Angeles; Alfredo in “La Traviata” with the Pacific Palisades Symphony; and his notable Mozart performances.

Silva’s performances as tenor soloist in concert include Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio;” Mozart’s “Grand Mass”and Dvorak’s “Requiem Mass” with the Pacific Palisades Symphony; Handel’s “Messiah” and Mozart’s “Requiem” with the Winchester Lutheran Cathedral Orchestra, and Obadiah in Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” with the Westwood Presbyterian Orchestra.

Silva has also sung in several opera films and television productions including the title role in Wordnet Production’s premiere of “Paul.”

Music is equally deep within Sue Ann Pinner.

The daughter of a United Methodist minister, she studied piano at 6, becoming the organist in her father’s church at the age of 12.

A full voice scholarship to Michigan State University led to graduation with honors.

At the University of Texas, Austin, she studied under Ducloux. By the age of 24, she had performed many leading operatic roles with full orchestra.

She received a master of music degree in opera performance and went on to a career in opera. She sings in 10 languages. Students flock to her classes at Santa Monica College in the Los Angeles area, where she is a professor of voice and opera.

In her life, as in her music, Pinner reaches mass audiences and she touches the lives of individuals. She sang as principal soloist for Pope John Paul II and 65,000 people at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles during the 1987 historic Papal visit that reached millions of people through an internationally televised broadcast.

She sang the “Ave Maria” for 22,000 people at the Anaheim Convention Center performing music from her top-selling bilingual sacred classical recording “Mariachi” with the internationally renowned Mariachi Sol de Mexico.

All El Dorado Community Concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are performed at Union Mine High School, Theater at the Mine, 6530 Koki Lane in El Dorado. Some concerts will be available to area students at no cost to the schools.

For information on the availability of new memberships or to obtain tickets for a single concert call Normadene Carpenter at 530-622-4218.

The fifth concert of the season, on Wednesday, March 20, will bring Presidio Brass, a brass ensemble, to El Dorado County. Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment.

By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound from San Diego has become a trademark for the ensemble, captivating audiences everywhere.

The sixth, and last concert of the season, on Thursday, April 18, will bring William Florian. An upbeat, energetic, musical journey of America’s greatest songs of the ’60s including songs he performed as lead singer of the famous New Christy Minstrels plus the music of Peter Paul and Mary, John Denver, Pete Seeger, The Mamas and The Papas, and uplifting originals presented with amusing stories.
