Andrea Catozzi


Andrew Charles "Andrea" Catozzi (1849, Carrare, Tocana, Italy – 1935, Rutland, Vt.) was an Italian-born American composer and tubist.

Active in the New England area during the late 19th century, Catozzi was tuba soloist with the band in Togus, Maine, until 1887, when he joined the Salem (Massachusetts) Band in a similar capacity.

His tuba solo Beelzebub was the prize-winning entry in an 1886 competition for instrumental solos sponsored by the Carl Fischer Company.
