Il Volo

“Best of 10 Years”

Ancient Theatre, Saturday 5th September 2020 @9.00pm

 

Celebrating 10 years of incredible music making, global pop-opera sensation Il Volo performs again at the Ancient Greek-Roman Theatre of  Taormina.

l Volo is a group of three (unconventional) teenage boys that came to fame in Italy after appearing on the Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone”.
They were promptly snapped up by the leading people in the music industry in Italy and their debut album quickly went platinum. Like Andrea Bocelli before them, they are Italians set for the international stage. Their appearance on American Idol in 2011 caused a frenzy of first week sales for the lads with further plans to launch themselves elsewhere in the world. Their appeal is definitely their quirky image coupled with their unexpectedly mature vocals. They cover old ground in the classical crossover sphere, but they certainly package it in a new and exciting way. With undeniably strong voices and impeccable charm, Il Volo are hard to resist.

The three singers are tenors Piero Barone (born 1993) and Ignazio Boschetto (born 1994), and baritone Gianluca Ginoble (born 1995).
