From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Sergio Franchi (April 6, 1926 – May 1, 1990) was an Italian tenor.

He was born in Cremona, Italy. His father wanted him to become an electrical engineer, so he studied both music and engineering simultaneously. The family moved to South Africa in 1952, where Sergio worked part-time as a draftsman, while continuing to study music. He later returned to Italy to study with Rossi Masetti in Milan.

He toured extensively in Europe, and in 1962, he undertook an American tour. In 1972, he became an American citizen. After his death, a foundation was formed in his name to give out scholarships to talented singing students of limited means.
