On Dec. 8, 2011, The GRAMMY Museum, in cooperation with Studiomusica USA, unveiled Andrea Bocelli: The Story Of A Voice. Located on the Museum's fourth floor, this one-of-a-kind, limited-time exhibit will offer visitors the unprecedented opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the world's most significant classical artists.
The exhibit features rare artifacts from Andrea Bocelli's personal collection:
- Bocelli's B.F. Pinkerton costume from the operatic performance of Madama Butterfly
- Vinyl of Andrea Chénier featuring Franco Corelli, considered to be one of Bocelli's greatest influences
- Bocelli's silver flute
- And much more
on December 9th, Andrea Bocelli, along with The GRAMMY Museum Foundation will celebrate the launch of The Andrea Bocelli Foundation with cocktails, dinner and a live performance, produced by Studiomusica USA and Jo Champa, starring Andrea Bocelli, David Foster, Heather Headley, Anna Maria Martinez and other surprise guests at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
On the same day as the launch, Bocelli participated in a unique educational program, also produced by The GRAMMY Museum. Titled Backstage Pass: Andrea Bocelli, the program invited Los Angeles-area high school students to hear Bocelli speak about his extraordinary life and career. Students from The Colburn School, The Harmony Project and LA Opera's Youth Program participated.
