Ciao, Amici!! It’s time to set those DVRs to record the Wind Awards on Monday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 6! Aren’t you glad all you have to do is push a few buttons? Remember the “old” days when it took reading a manual and your teenager to help you figure out how to program the old VCR? 🙂 There is something to be said for modern-day technology! 🙂
A little info here on the Wind Music Awards, thanks to Daniela, who translated this article, Il Volo is guaranteed a win for Notte Magica, as it has gone platinum.
Here is some more from the translated article….
I’m sending you this article to clarify the prize assignment method. As you see it is based exclusively on sales data. The Magic Night CD is Platinum, so it will receive the prize. We all cross our fingers for the live prize that is based on the audience presence at the concerts, but we do not understand whether foreign ones are also taken into account. The live prize is set up this year for the first time.
Also re-confirmed for this season the desire for music in the summer on Rai1 with Carlo Conti and Vanessa Incontrada who are now paired. In June, two races on Rai1 come to the Wind Music Awards, an event that will give the audience a great musical performance thanks to the presence of the most beloved singers! So much music, performance and laughter in the two premiered shows on Rai1 in the early evening. Many great stars of Italian music will be rewarded for their recent recordings and will perform on the prestigious stage of the Verona Arena for the Wind Music Awards. To present the two evenings, live on Rai 1 starting at 8:35 pm on June 5 and 6, 2017, will be Carlo Conti and Vanessa Incontrada. Do you want to know who will be there? We immediately discover the news and latest advances coming to you directly from Verona Arena!

From all of the stars that will be there, it looks like it will be quite the program! I’ve highlighted people I’ve heard of before, as well as those Il Volo have collaborated with – it is quite the list!!
Next week, look for Myron’s review of the show and all the results!
If you don’t already subscribe to RAI1 on your cable or satellite, be sure to call your cable company today and see if they offer RAI1 and if you can subscribe to it. I don’t know if it is available is all areas, but often they will let you subscribe for just a month, and then you can cancel it. You can give this link a try on your computer…. http://www.freeintertv.com/view/id-1711 This seemed to work for me, but I do not know for sure if it will work for you. I just ask you do not shoot the messenger (that would be me!) I also tried the actual RAI1 link, but it seems to be restricted for Italy viewing only.
Which reminds me, I better do it now, too, or I will certainly forget!! 🙂
Ciao for now!
