UPDATE: IL VOLO & PBS PRESENT: ENNIO MORRICONE! THU, AUG 26, 2021

Hi there!

Not sure how many of you were able to watch this last week, but I wanted to give my two cents worth!  🙂

I have to say, that I think they actually did a pretty good job of it.  Of course, there wasn’t enough of our guys singing, in the whole 1.5 hour show, I think we maybe got about 45 min of them singing – maybe!

But overall, I think it was good.  They did a simulated interview session, back and forth and of course lots of pledge time.  Not sure how they do it, but it is in English.  Even though we translated it all and some of us have downloaded the entire concert, it is nice to hear it in English.  🙂

I think, perhaps, all of our bugging them helped them finally pronounce their names right.  They came really, really close to saying Ignazio’s name almost right!  🙂  It only took them 12 years!

I really thought it would air twice this month, but it was the only time it is scheduled for Aug or Sep.  I imagine it will be on again for the Nov/Dec season.

I did want to let you know that you can order the DPTV Passport for $5 a month and should be able to stream the concerts and other programs.  And give you the links to purchase the CD, DVDS, etc.  LINKS ARE BELOW:

DPTV Passport – Detroit Public TV

Detroit Public Television (pledgecart.org)

And, yes, I will probably order the whole “kit and kaboodle!”  🙂

Hello folks – 

Just a really quick post on this – not sure if this will be going national quite yet, but if you are in the Detroit viewing area, PBS will be presenting the Ennio Morricone concert this Thursday at 9p EST (DST).  If it’s not on in your area, call your local PBS station to find out when it might be aired.

Likely most have already seen it on this site and have seen and read the translations from Jo Ann and Daniela.  I am hoping they did a nice interview in Italy with them and this show will give us some insight to possible future concerts and CD/DVDs.  I know they said they were working on the CD, so we may be able to order it for Christmas.  I literally recall about 6 years ago now, ordering the CD/DVD from them and having to go in circles trying to get it delivered to my correct address, because I was moving!  What a nightmare that was!

The guys obviously did not come to the USA this time to promote it from Detroit PBS and they did not ask for any volunteers, or Chris and I would have been there!  🙂

Hope all are taking care with the recent Covid uptick!  Stay safe and wear your masks!  🙂

Ignazio turns 27!!

Yes, folks, it’s hard to believe our baby-faced darling, is turning 27 and possibly, he’s found love?  🙂

Ok, I think most of you know what to do by now, we’ve actually gotten some early requests for his birthday video song!

A  few clarifications…. I know there are some new folks out there…

  1. we ask for a song that will go with the birthday video that Kelly puts together, NOT songs we would like them to sing (we really have no direct contact with the guys…)

  2. usually the song that is chosen is by ANOTHER artist, not them, or Il Volo

  3.  I have a personal request, please do not send more than 3 song choices.  I know there are so many to choose from, but you can always save them for the other 2, or for next time.

  4. Also, please send wishes/songs to the GMAIL account only.  Any wishes or songs written on the FaceBook page will not be captured.

As always, we appreciate all of you!  Please send your song choices and wishes to:  ilvoloflightcrew@gmail.com.

If possible, please put in subject line either SONG or WISH.  This lets me navigate all of the emails more easily.  🙂

Please send song choice NO LATER THAN, Friday, September 17.  This will give Kelly a few weeks to choose and create the video.

 

Grazie Mille,

Jana and Kelly

Site Reminders…

Hello Flight Crew Ilvolovers!

Just a few reminders for those that read and post comments on our site.

Our site’s motto is “Share the Love.”  Please remember that when you are posting comments about someone or something, please keep it respectful.  If you are not sure, try replacing your name, in place of the person or thing you are referring to, and think if you would want your name published in that context for all the world to see?  (in case you were wondering, the last post from June 5, has been viewed by 70 countries on all 6 continents!)

We don’t know for sure, but we have been told that family and friends of the guys read this site and maybe even on the RARE occasion, the guys themselves. 

We’d like to maintain the high integrity this site is known for.  We are not FaceBook (although we have a FaceBook page – your comments there, should reflect the same), or the latest tabloid news site.

We respect everyone’s opinion and know that not everyone will like everything, but let’s keep things friendly.  It’s ok to disagree, but please keep it respectful.

We ask that you remember this for all future posts and the wonderful stories and translations we have coming to you from Daniela, Susan, Giovanna, and others!

 

If you have a concern, please feel free to send it to our ilvoloflightcrew@gmail.com address.  This email is not public and is usually only read by me.  🙂

Sincerely,

Pat, Daniela, Jo Ann (Giovanna), Susan, Jana
