Andrea Bocelli to Perform with Houston Symphony, 11/28On November 28, world-renowned and beloved Italian tenor, Andrea Bocelli, will be returning by popular demand to perform with the Houston Symphony and Houston Symphony Chorus in a special, one-night-only concert at the Toyota Center. The evening's program will feature an all-new program of Bocelli's famed love songs, celebrating much of the repertoire the classical crossover singer has made world-famous over his incredible career, and giving his fans a stirring evening of soaring arias and music from his recent release and PBS special, Live In Central Park.

Born with poor eyesight, Bocelli became blind at the age of twelve following a football accident. Since winning the Newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival in 1994, Bocelli has recorded thirteen solo studio albums of both pop and classical music; two greatest hits albums; and eight complete operas, selling over 70 million copies worldwide.
