    Il Volo Take Flight - Italian tenors to appear in First PBS Special and to Release DVD on Feb. 28

    That's Amore! That's how we feel about Il Volo!

    Italian singing sensations Il Volo soar in their first PBS Special Il Volo Takes Flight as well as on their upcoming CD and DVD, Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From the Detroit Opera House, which is scheduled to be released on Feb. 28 on Geffen Records. Due to the extraordinary response from a single airing on the PBS Detroit affiliate DPTV this past December, the program is now scheduled to air as part of the March 2012 PBS Fundraising Drive across the country between March 3 and March 18.

    "Il Volo is extremely talented. It's a wonderful pleasure to introduce another new music sensation like these three, young Italian tenors to American audiences through PBS," said Joe Campbell, Vice President of Fundraising Programming at PBS.

    Confirmed cities airing the special include New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Check your local listings for a schedule of airtimes on PBS or visit www.pbs.org/tv_schedules.

    Il Volo Takes Flight – Live From the Detroit Opera House was filmed last year while the group was on their first North American concert tour and captures the genuine excitement of their live performance, the stunning crowd reaction and the many standing ovations the group has received in every city they have performed. The show includes Italian classics such as "O Sole Mio" and "Un Amore Cosi Grande" as well as a magnificent version of the classic Charlie Chaplin song "Smile." The Live DVD includes a bonus documentary.

    Piero Barone 18, Ignazio Borschetto 17 and Gianuca Ginoble 16, also dubbed The Teenage Tenors, exploded onto the US music scene and into the hearts of US fans following their show-stopping appearance on American Idol last year. The trio is finalizing details for a 2012 North American tour, produced by Live Nation, to be announced soon.
