Three talented teens from Italy known as Il Volo ("flight") will take the stage of Easton’s State Theatre on Monday at 8 p.m. The singing trio currently is opening for Barbra Streisand in her tour, which included the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The young lads were introduced to the U.S. when they appeared on “American Idol” with their rendition of the Neapolitan standard, “O Sole Mio.” Last fall, they filmed their first PBS special at Detroit's famed Opera House.
