Biographical / Historical
Enrico Batelli was one of New Haven’s leading musicians in the first half of the twentieth century. Born in Caserta, Italy in 1875 or 1876, he was trained at the Naples Conservatory. In 1902 Batelli came to the United States, and eventually decided to settle in New Haven, where he was active as a composer, conductor, organist, pianist, and teacher. He had a teaching studio at 890 Chapel Street in New Haven, and he worked at several local churches, culminating in a 38-year career as organist at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church at 79 Davenport Street. He died in New Haven on July 31, 1944.
