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:
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! 🙂
