About THE PIZARRO BROTHERS
Home-schooled and raised with an appreciation and love for music, brothers Dominic and Angelo Pizarro began studying classical music at the age of three and a half in San Diego, California. Fired up with a zest for music with the encouragement and support of both their mother and grandfather, the boys later developed an avid interest in jazz and pop.
The brothers were inspired by music greats such as Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Harry Conick Jr., Elton John, George Gershwin, Rogers & Hammerstein, Billy Taylor, Daniel Jackson, Duke Ellington, Earl Hines, Billy Strayhorn, Frank Sinatra, Horace Silver, Ray Charles, and many more.
The Pizarro Brothers started performing duets on one piano in 2003 when Dominic was seven years old and Angelo four. They began busking and performing around San Diego at community festivals, the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, nursing homes and local cafes.
The Pizarro Brothers have been featured on CBS Channel 8 with Larry Himmel, Fox News, KUSI & The CW. They have performed at Anthology, Make A Wish Foundation, The U.S. Grant, The Ronald McDonald House Charities, The Rock Church, Petco Black Tie Gala, San Diego Sockers, Manchester Hyatt, Daniel Jackson Week at Croce’s, Fashion Valley Mall, Mission Valley Mall, Horton Plaza, Borders, Seaport Village, Temple Beth Israel, Christmas on the Prado, the Italian Festa and the Sicilian Festa. They also perform at weddings, fundraisers, schools, various retirement communities, and special events.
Their most memorable experience was being asked to perform the Opening Act for Marvin Hamlisch on July 2, 2010.
Today, Dominic 14 and Angelo 11 perform weekly at the Ronald McDonald House. They share their love for music, captivating audiences everywhere with their stylish two-piano renditions of great musical pieces and improvisations performed with remarkable synchronicity.
