Giuseppe Pimazzoni (Baritone) (Verona 1862 - USA ? ?)




He studied singing in Milan under the pedagogue Enrico Fagotti and probably made his debut in 1884 at the Teatro Goldoni in Livorno as Arbace in E. Petrella’s ‘’Jone’’. In 1906 he sang at the Italian opera in Holland and went the next year to North America. Here he sang in San Francisco, Berkley, Oakland and New Orleans. He remained in USA and retired from the stage there in 1921.
