Il Volo takes flight into the future…

Just like other performers, the Italian group Il Volo has to postpone their live concerts while the world aims for more control over COVID-19.  The talented trio was originally going to perform shows in Europe this month, but those shows are now rescheduled for late 2021.  The young men are excited to connect with their audiences once again, performing Italian classics and original material with their powerful operatic voices.

Spotlight producer Paul Larson invites us back to a simpler time, when “social distancing” was not a common term.  His second interview with Il Volo happened on January 30, 2020, backstage at Place Bell in Laval, Quebec.  No one was talking about postponing shows back then.  No one was wearing a mask.  Larson and the Italian lads sat less than six feet apart, chatting about their 10 year career, and their sixth PBS special, shot in beautiful Matera, Italy.


New Interview:  Hear the guys chatting about music, their lives, and the past as they look to the future.

Archival interview:  To see the three singers looking much younger than their big voices would suggest, enjoy Larson’s first interview with them, from 2013.


The group sings traditional tunes and some energetic new songs during the special Il Volo: Ten Years, airing Friday, December 18 at 3 pm on Mountain Lake PBS.
