Andrea Bocelli To Perform In Empty Cathedral For Easter Sunday Concert

Andrea Bocelli To Perform In Empty Cathedral For Easter Sunday Concert

Andrea Bocelli is set to bring us a once-in-a-lifetime concert event this weekend for Easter Sunday, April 12.

The 61-year-old opera singer will be performing a solo concert at the Duomo cathedral in Milan, Italy – and the venue will be completely empty.

Andrea and organist Emanuele Vianelli will be the only people in the cathedral for the special event, as the venue has been shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“On the day in 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,” Andrea shared in a statement about the event. “I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone — whether they are believers or not — truly needs right now.”

He adds, “Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride. It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth.”

Andrea Bocelli: Music for Hope will be live-streamed on Sunday at 1 pm EST on YouTube.
