Behind the Scenes with Il Volo in the PBS SoCal Studio

Il Volo Who needs to go to Italy, when Italy comes to SoCal? When Italian singing trio, Il Volo, joined us in our studio last night for a live pledge show highlighting their Notte Magica concert, it was as if we’d been swept away to Florence (minus the travel time!)

Singers Gianluca Ginoble, Ignazio Boschetto, and Piero Barone chatted with us about working with LA Opera artistic director, Placido Domingo, and why they wanted to take on the challenge of performing a full concert in operatic style. They also shared some of their biggest inspirations (Frank Sinatra was mentioned more than once,) how they’ve grown as artists, and even entertained us by belting out a few spontaneous holiday tunes! Here’s a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot…
