Neapolitan crooning sensation and PBS network favorite, Patrizio Buanne, is known for his engaging and spectacular performances, playing to sold out theatres and arenas around the world with his big band orchestra. Now he comes exclusively to the Potter Center for the first time in eight years on his “up close & personal” national tour, which heralds a new era for this chart-topping, rich baritone voice in the US. In less than five years, this young Neapolitan has captured the hearts of fans of timeless Italian songs across the globe, selling millions of albums and earning him the title “the ambassador of Dolce Vita”. He has already performed for such luminaries as the Pope, royal families, and a US president, but what quality separates Patrizio Buanne from other great artists? Is it the natural grace of his voice, the “rugged” good looks, or the confident, casual, respectful attention that he gives to his audience? Or is it just the basic trust he evokes in people? Italy has provided a simple word to describe all of the above: “Simpatico.”
