Il Volo: 10 Years

Premiered on Detroit Public Television September 2, 2019

Ten years of friendship, memories and music. International superstars Il Volo are back with their sixth PBS special, Il Volo: Ten Years, in honor of their tenth anniversary of making music. In this new concert, the trio performs in the ancient city of Matera, Italy, surrounded by the beautifully unique landscape. In this program, Il Volo will be performing its well-loved hits, like Grande Amore and Il Mondo, as well as tracks from its new album, Musica.


In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble, appeared on the popular Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard “O Sole Mio.” The boys, who won the competition easily, decided their group needed a name. “Il Volo,” meaning “flight,” was chosen to signify the feeling that these three young tenors were about to spread their wings and fly.
