An interview with Il Volo, who play Jacob's Pavilion on Tuesday


Il Volo formed in 2009 to compete on the popular Italian talent show, Ti Lascio Una Canzone, on which they established themselves as a trio of incredible tenors. After the show, the three young singers, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble, decided to stay together and called themselves “il volo,” meaning “flight” in Italian. The group is gaining popularity fast with its first, self-titled album having reached gold. It's now climbing to platinum status back in Italy. Their album is a combination of original songs and classics including, “O Sole Mio,” “Per te,” and “Smile,” originally composed by Charlie Chaplin for his film, Modern Times. Boschetto recently spoke about the tour, which comes to Jacob's Pavilion at Nautica at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Tickets range from $40 to $80.
