Maia Naomi Silberstein, a renowned Belgian baroque violinist and Davis High School graduate, will perform a Father’s Day concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 15, at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. This is a free concert but donations to help with expenses incurred by the musicians will be accepted with gratitude.

The program includes virtuosic and rapturous 17th-century German and Italian music by Buxtehude, Schmelzer, Frescobaldi, Castello and Bertali.
Silberstein began her performing career at 16, soloing on a Tchaikovsky concerto with the Sacramento Symphony. After graduating from Davis High in 1985, she received diplomas from the Juilliard School and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, where she has taught for the past two years.

She performs in Europe, Asia, and North and South America with renowned ensembles such as Les Arts Florissants, Ricercar Consort and La Petite Bande, with whom she has made numerous recordings. She has worked as concertmaster for various Belgian and Italian ensembles. An active chamber musician, she performs with such artists as François Fernandez and Enrico Gatti.
For this Father’s Day concert she will be joined by Katherine Heater, harpsichord, and Amy Brodo, viola da gamba.
After graduating from UC Berkeley and the Oberlin Institute, Heater studied harpsichord and fortepiano at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam. Now on the music faculty at UC Berkeley, she performs throughout the United States and Asia with early music ensembles such as Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra.

As a chamber musician, she performs frequently with such artists as Elisabeth Blumenstock and Judith Linsenberg.
Brodo, a Curtis Institute of Music graduate, performed for many years in Italy, Israel and England with positions such as assistant principal cellist of the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Italy and cellist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

In England, she performed with Andrew Parrott and the Hanover Band, the Royal Philharmonic and many others. Now based in San Francisco, Brodo performs with many Bay Area ensembles such as American Bach Soloists and Magnificat Baroque Orchestra.
