Reader Submission: Reintroducing Pablo Siqueiros

Pablo Siqueiros
Our latest "Reader Submission" is Pablo Siqueiros, who is one of this year's four Florentine Opera Studio Artists in Milwaukee. He isn't technically new to this site, as we featured him along with two other singers in 2011 when we asked readers who we've missed featuring. Now that he's well into his career development, we figured he deserved his own post.

He'll be joined by the other three artists, soprano Julie Tabash, tenor Aaron Short and mezzo-soprano Erin Gonzalez, for a holiday concert at the Wayne and Kristine Lueders Florentine Opera Center. They'll be performing on December 20  and 21at 7:30 PM. For more information, visit their website or call 414-291-5700, ext. 224.

As a Studio Artist at Florentine Opera, he will perform the roles of Barone Douphol in La Traviata, Curio in Giulio Cesare in Egitto, and Customs Sergeant in La Bohème.

In the summer of 2012, Siqueiros debuted the title role in Mozart's Don Giovanni with Bay View Music Festival. In 2011 he participated in the Los Angeles-based OperaWorks Advanced Artist Program under the direction of Ann Baltz.

Siqueiros has received awards from the Virginia Hawk Vocal Scholarship Competition, NATS San Diego Chapter Auditions, and SDSU Symphony Orchestra Soloist Competition.

He is a recent graduate with his Master of Music degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where he performed the roles of Interpreter/2nd Doctor in Daron Hagenʼs Amelia, Silvester in Three Sisters Who Are Not Sisters, Sprecher in Die Zauberflöte.

The San Diego native holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from San Diego State University, where his passion for opera initiated. While at SDSU, he performed the roles of Bob in The Old Maid and the Thief and Ko-Ko in The Mikado.
