(PR) Il Volo will be filming their concert appearance at Detroit's Opera House on October 27th for the local PBS station.

The show will be produced by famed Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich, and Il Volo's managers, Michele Torpedine (who discovered Andrea Bocelli) and Steve Leber, are executive producers. The show will be part of their local pledge drive.

DPTV is a viewer supported PBS member station serving the nation's 11th largest television market in Southeast Michigan and over a thousand communities in Canada. It is a leading national producer and distributor of PBS fundraising programs.

"We are excited and proud to be producing this concert for national distribution with our partners at PBS and the Michigan Opera Theatre," says Detroit Public TV's President and General Manager, Rich Homberg.

Il Volo - Piero Barone 18, Ignazio Boschetto 17 and Gianluca Ginoble 16 have been receiving unanimous raves for their vocal talent and showmanship. "If you've never heard them sing 'O Solo Mio' or other classics in their rep, then be prepared to be blown away," raved NY's Daily News. "Il Volo wring every ounce of emotion from the classical-crossover material on their self-titled debut, then find just a bit more to extract," commented The Village Voice.

Their self-titled Geffen Records debut produced by Grammy Award winning producer Humberto Gatica (Josh Groban, Michael Buble) and Tony Renis landed at No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart upon its release and has sold over a half million copies globally. Il Volo has appeared on several TV shows since their May release including American Idol, The Today Show, Ellen, Leno, The Talk as well as the final episode of HBO's Entourage. Their astonishing vocal talent was first heard on the Italian hit TV show, "Ti Lascio Una Canzone (Leaving You A Song)."
