Attention: Andrea Bocelli in New York City in September! We wanted to remind those in the Tour Italy Now community that international opera sensation Andrea Bocelli will be appearing in a free concert in Central Park, New York City, this September 15. Tickets are free. To be in the running to obtain tickets, sign up at the Andrea Bocelli Central Park website. Remember, as we’ve told you here and here, this amazing concert, with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Alan Gilbert, will be in great demand and there will probably be more people who want to attend than ticket availability. But if you are so inclined, if you live in the New York City area or plan to be there in mid-September, give it a try! And check out the terrific video of Andrea Bocelli on the website!
If you can’t make the concert, it will be taped and broadcast at a later date on public television. So we can all tune in and here this Italian wonder of a tenor!
For those who live in the New York area, there’s another opportunity to hear Andrea Bocelli this September. He will appear “in conversation” with New York Times culture report Robin Pogrebin at the Walter Reade Theater in Lincoln Center (that’s on West 65th between Amsterdam and Broadway) . Like the concert, these tickets, $30 apiece, will likely go fast.
Bocelli spent his early childhood in La Sterza, a frazione of Lajatico, Tuscany, Italy, which is about 40 km south of Pisa. For more about Bocelli, click HERE.
Yours in celebrating Italy,
