Il Volo Recital
Taormina Greek Theatre, July 20 and 21 2014
Il Volo (English: The Flight) is an Italian operatic pop trio, consisting of singers: tenors Piero Barone (born 1993) and Ignazio Boschetto (born 1994), and baritone Gianluca Ginoble (born 1995).
The three pop-opera singers started their career in 2009, when they met on the second edition of the Italian RAI TV music competition show Ti lascio una canzone, held at the Ariston Theater in Sanremo. On May 2, 2009, Gianluca Ginoble won the competition, singing Andrea Bocelli’s “Il mare calmo della sera”. During the competition, the three singers were chosen to perform, as a trio, the Neapolitan classic “’O sole mio”. After the competition, they continued to perform together under the names “Tre Tenori”, “The Tryo”, “Il Trio”, and finally in the fall of 2010… “Il Volo” (which translates to “the flight” in Italian).
In 2010 the trio participated in the charity single “We Are the World 25 for Haiti”, a remake of the 1985 hit song “We Are the World”.
Il Volo was nominated for two Latin Grammy Awards in Best Pop Album by a Duo or Group with Vocal for Il Volo (Edicion en espanol) and in Best New Artist.
In October and early November 2012 Il Volo performed in concert with Barbra Streisand. They sang with her the song “Smile”, and “Make My Garden Grow”, and performed singles “O Sole Mio” and “Un Amore Cosi Grande”.
On December 11, 2012 Il Volo performed at the 2012 Nobel Prize Concert in Oslo Norway, with King Harald V in attendance.
