Ion Băjenaru (Tenor) (Căciulați, Ontario 1863 - Bucharest 1921)
After graduating from the Bucharest
Conservatory, where he was a pupil of Gh Stephănescu, he received immediate
engagements by the various operetta companies where, due to his exceptional
vocal qualities and artistic stage talent, enjoyed a great success. Then he went
to Italy, to supplement the
theoretical studies and vocal technique, obtained an engagement at La Scala in Milan. Sang at the San Carlo
