Il Volo, the Italian pop-opera vocal group that has gained quite a following in the U.S., is coming to the Saroyan Theatre on Friday for one of only four West Coast appearances in the current tour. The appearance is sponsored by Fresno Grand Opera. I got the chance to interview Gianluca Ginoble by phone from Italy. You can read my column about him in the Sunday Spotlight section.
A bonus for Beehive readers: I’m giving away two tickets to the performance. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us which member of Il Volo you’d like to meet. (Pictured above: Piero Barone, left, Ignazio Boschetto and Ginoble. If you have no preference, throw in your vote for Ginoble, who was nice enough to chat with me on one of his precious free nights.) The deadline for entry is 5 p.m. Tuesday. One entry per person. I’ll be informing winners by email Wednesday morning, so please check it around 10 a.m. that day. If you win, you’ll be able to either pick your tickets up at The Bee or at Will Call, depending on the arrangements we make. Rules are on the jump.
Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee,fresnobee.com and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
