Eventhough locked down, we can participate to a global concert attended by the citizens of globe and pray for Hope. Let's see each other at Bocelli's “Music for Hope” worldwide concert on YouTube, from the Duomo di Milano.

Called “Music For Hope,” the concert will be live-streamed on YouTube for all the world to enjoy. Andrea Bocelli will perform at Milan’s Metropolitan Cathedral-Basilica of the Nativity of St. Mary, better known as the Duomo di Milano or simply the Duomo. In a press release, Bocelli explained that he was invited to perform by the mayor of Milan, saying:

“On the day on which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan.”

As the orders for isolation still stand, there will be no audience present in the cathedral for the concert, which could bring new acoustics to the esteemed church. Instead, the audience will be gathered around their computers and smart TVs, where anyone with internet access can enjoy the free concert streamed on YouTube.

Bocelli will perform without an orchestra or supporting chorus, but instead he will be accompanied by just one organist, Emanuele Vianelli, who will perform on the Duomo’s pipe organ, one of the largest in the world.
