Accompanied by the New York Philharmonic, under the direction of music director Alan Gilbert, this September 2011 concert was popular Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli's special gift to New York City. Award-winning journalist Paula Zahn is the evening's host. Bocelli was joined that rainy, windswept evening by pop stars Celine Dion, Tony Bennett, Chris Botti and David Foster, and from the classical world, bass baritone Bryn Terfel, sopranos Ana Maria Martinez and Pretty Yende, and violinist Nicola Benedetti, along with the Westminster Symphonic Choir, under the direction of Joe Miller. Bocelli presented a varied repertoire that includes well known arias, fan favorites, and some new surprises.
