Effortlessly spanning the skills required for both operatic works and pop tunes, the talent of the three members of Il Volo has brought the band well-deserved success. Its blend of opera, pop and classical symphonic music with some Latin beats has made Il Volo an internationally celebrated group. The band continues to refine its sound as its fanbase grows, and its live concerts attract a range of dedicated supporters that love Il Volo's music.
Ti Lascio Una Canzone
In 2009, teens Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble individually participated in the Italian talent show Ti lascio una canzone (which translates to "I leave you a song.") Their talents were so evident and complementary that, by the fourth episode, the creator of the show decided to match them together, similar to The Three Tenors, for a performance of "O Sole Mio." That performance put the group on the road to worldwide stardom. After testing out two other names – "I Tre Tenorini" (which translates to "The 3 Little Tenors") and "The Tryo" – the band settled on "Il Volo" (which translates to "The Flight") in 2010. Il Volo's debut, self-titled album, released in 2010, included both Italian classics and original songs. The album's release in the US was promoted during American Idol in 2011 and the first single "O Sole Mio" reached No. 10 on the Billboard 200. Il Volo began its first world tour in 2011 and continued to perform for four years straight. By 2013 the band performed 50 sold-out concerts throughout North and South America.
