I’m back from my vacation, and it seems like it’s been forever since I’ve been here. Mostly because I was rushing around on the evening that I left and walked away leaving my computer packed and ready by the front door…and not realizing it until I was on the plane ready to taxi down the runway. *face palm* Working from my phone didn’t work out so well with our spotty wi-fi either.
Anyway, I’m back and ready to catch up with my Il Volo family. 🙂
Il Volo Conquers New York…Again…
While I was gone, our guys made what must be the quickest trip ever to the US, the focal point being their performance as guests with Laura Pausini in New York at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.
By all reports, Il Volo was as amazing as always. According a piece compiled from several resources to give us an impression of the concert (by the ladies at All About Il Volo), they got a very warm reception the minute they walked out on stage:
For those of us that like a simple play-by-play,

Bringing Their Music to the Young People
Of course, it’s no news to us that our guys are amazing and are gaining fans set on abjectly adoring them, but it just warms my heart when I read of it happening. It seems like the powers that be at the Modesto Gallo Center are excited to be able to be a part of it as well.
to head over to our affiliate, Team Il Volo, to read about how they feel that Il Volo will help them appeal to a younger demographic–which we also know is one of Il Volo’s goals.
With a Song in…His…Heart
It has been said that another goal of Il Volo’s is to include some of their own original music on future albums, a goal I know I’m hoping will be accomplished very soon. In the meantime, Ignazio has debuted an original composition as a songwriter and composer! I know we’ve all see the video, but we can watch it a few more times, right? Singing, “Come in Paradiso”, Ms. Katya Pantaleo:

Again, thanks to the ladies at All About Il Volo, there are several translations available
Till next time.
