Most church visitors will not be able to enter the place of worship this Easter Sunday, but exceptions are being made Andrea Bocelli, which will hold a concert that night at the historic Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy, to be offered as a global live-stream on YouTube.
Bocelli will only be accompanied by the cathedral organs of the Emanuele Vianelli cathedral for the event, which of course will take place without direct hearing. Sacred pieces scheduled for the specified list include “Ave Maria” and “Sancta Maria” Mascagni. “
The show, entitled “Bocelli: Music for Hope,” is set to take place at 7 pm. in Italy, the country of origin of the singer suffered greatly. That time slot will stream it in the U.S. at 1 p.m. ET and 10 pm PT, the time when many viewers would attend church services if not for the whole world coronavirus crisis. This will be seen exclusively on the Bocelli YouTube channel (click here).
The city of Milan, Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo, Sugar Music, Universal Music Group and YouTube have partnered for a web concert (which according to Bocelli he will not take fees).
“I’m glad Andrea has accepted our invitation,” Milan mayor Giuseppe Sala said in a statement announcing the show. “This year, Easter will be very different for all of us. The encouraging calm that usually comes together today is greatly disturbed by the pandemic we experience. I am sure that Bocelli’s extraordinary voice will be the hug we miss today, a strong and special hug, which can warm the hearts of Milan, Italy and the world. “
“I believe in the power of joint prayer,” Bocelli said in a statement. “I believe in Christian Easter, the universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they believe or not – really needs it now. Thanks to music, live streaming, bringing together millions of hands held everywhere in the world, we will embrace the throbbing heart on this wounded earth, this extraordinary international workshop which is the reason for the pride of Italy. Milan is generous, brave, proactive, and all of Italy will return, and soon, the winning model, the revival engine that we all expect. It was great to see it, at the Duomo, during the Easter celebration that evoked the mystery of birth and rebirth. “
Apart from the concert, the Andrea Bocelli Foundation has started GoFundMe Campaign to help hospitals buy supplies to protect medical staff from viruses.
