Note from Myron:
This is a general email going to the first group on the list that popped up so it may not affect you. But if it does I hope you read it.
Jeannette and I are the ones dealing with the Palms Hotel and the Pearl Theatre and we know these people and know who to talk to in order to get things changed. If you have a complaint about the set up that we are organizing please email me. Please do not chew out the staff at the hotel because they know nothing about our arrangements until they are given exact instructions from higher up. AND THEN that is our business. If you blow your stack at some hard working staff member when they have no idea what you are talking about then that just makes things more difficult for us – for me.
Some notes about the hotel code: The one I gave you DOES WORK NOW. Sept. 3, I tried it myself and so did Jeannette. It works.
Next thing: our contract allows for 8 rooms with group discount. When those are taken up then I (read that Myron ) will be notified and we will sign out another bank of rooms . You must understand that they will not give out a discount on 60, 70 , 80 rooms or whatever if we only have 12 people at the Fan Faire. So that is why they phase them in by group numbers. Someone told the hotel that they “heard ” there was 125 rooms being set aside. I have not idea where that came from but it is wrong. As I said: 8 then another 8 and so on. I take the blame for not making that part clear. Frankly, I think we are going to fill this banquet hall and fan faire totally so we may need more rooms.
The evidence will happen when you all register on our website for the Fan Faire. We just finished setting up bank business today so that is going up on our website soon.
Guess what ? These are nice people we are dealing with. You may have gotten another idea but that is my fault.
They have their process they go through. None of us were expecting the Landslide of response from all or you. We thought we would have to go out and beat the grass and the bushes to get people to respond. We never guessed that this huge response would happen so early ( it is still 6 months away yet ).
So, to summary: Go ahead and use the term ” Il Volo Fan Dinner ” (their term, not ours but just deal with it) or the code: CYILV16
Thank you for your patience. I am sure we will all have a great time when it gets here. In the meantime, relax and enjoy the fall.
They’re here in October!

Don’t miss out! Buy your tickets now to our Gala Weeken…
At least they didn’t list Gianluca as a soprano. The media always gets that wrong. We know better!
This is my new favorite video. It was made by Natalia Phelps and it’s marvelous! Kind of kick starts your heart. Please enlarge for the best effect.
Just for fun. Remember this? It’s ok to forget the suits though.
If they sang the phone book I would buy it! Thanks Kitty!
So much was going on in May that I overlooked this spot on review. Nothing to disagree with here!
