Vittorio Grigòlo is renowned for his soaring tenor voice and his success as an opera star, performing with The Metropolitan Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. But he learned his craft in a very different arena. From age 11 to 14, Grigòlo was a chorister with the legendary Sistine Chapel Choir in Rome. He draws on this background to bring a uniquely authentic approach to his intimate album of sacred music, ‘Ave Maria.'  Vittorio Grigolo: Ave Maria is WFMT: Chicago 'New Release of the Week.'
