Il Volo formed in 2009 after Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble made individual appearances as participants on an Italian talent show.The incredible vocals of the three teenagers caught the attention of Michele Torpedine, who later helped launch their musical careers. Since their discovery as solo artists and a trio, Il Volo became the first Italian artist in history to sign a contract with a major American record label.They were first introduced to PBS in December 2011, and immediately became a hit with PBS viewers of all ages.The group has gone on to produce at least six albums, has been nominated and awarded numerous recognition’s and has toured around the world–performing at some of the most prestigious venues.

The trio’s 2022 “Il Volo: Live in Concert” tour pays homage to composer Ennio Morricone. The group, known for its brand of pop opera affectionately dubbed “popera,” has made the centuries-old genre mainstream again. Now, Il Volo’s latest endeavor is reviving beloved “Cinema Paradiso” and “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” composer Ennio Morricone’s famous soundtracks. Il Volo worked closely with Ennio Morricone’s son Andrea. The younger Morricone wrote the lyrics to accompany his father’s music specifically for Barone, Ginoble, and Boschetto.
