Due to the extraordinary success of the Italian teenage tenors' debut PBS Special "Il Volo Takes Flight," Live From The Detroit Opera House last year, the trio will shoot two more specials for PBS - "We Are Love" & "Buon Natale."
Both will be filmed in front of a live audience at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on March 26th & 27th. "We Are Love" will debut on PBS stations across the country beginning June 1, 2013 and "Buon Natale" will air starting November 30, 2013.

Those dressed in Christmas cheer will be entered to win the chance to meet Il Volo on-stage during this taping. This concert will feature holiday favorites from "Silent Night" to "White Christmas," "Feliz Navidad" and more. Click here to purchase tickets for March 27th. For both tapings Il Volo will be backed by a 25-piece orchestra and 5-piece band.
Il Volo's debut PBS Special "Il Volo Takes Flight," Live From The Detroit Opera has seen over 2,100 broadcasts between its original airing in March 2012, and repeats in June and December 2012. The new specials, "We Are Love" and "Buon Natale," will be produced by Richard Jay-Alexander, directed by Scott Lochmus with Detroit PBS DBTV as the producing agent.
Il Volo, Piero Barone (19), Gianluca Ginoble (18) and Ignazio Boschetto (18), released their self-titled debut album in April 2011 where is debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. Il Volo's second album We Are Love was released last fall as the group finished up a North American headline tour and a guest spot on Barbra Streisand's tour. The trio's live performances have received standing ovations across the US and critical acclaim. "Exhilarating" by the El Paso Times and "Il Volo means flight in Italian - and it turned out to be the perfect name for a trio of teen tenors who have been soaring to new heights. Beautiful rich voices, wonderful harmonies, uplifting their audiences with each moment full of emotion and drama" raved NY's Journal News.
Il Volo have appeared on major US television shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Talk, Ellen, Rachel Ray and made a surprise appearance on the final episode of the HBO Series 'Entourage'.
