Gospel Music’s Largest Event Kicks Off with Bonus Concert
Pigeon Forge, TN (September 25, 2016) – In just a few hours NQC, Gospel music’s largest annual event, will commence with a very special bonus “welcome” concert as thousands of gospel music lovers make their way to the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Greater Vision, The Hoppers, Jim Brady Trio, Legacy Five, The Mark Trammell Quartet and Tim Lovelace are set to launch the 2016 edition of NQC, the National Quartet Convention.

During the week of September 25 – October 1, 2016, the city of Pigeon Forge, TN will welcome an estimated 40,000 fans as they enjoy concerts and festivities planned during NQC.
Pigeon Forge, TN’s LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge serves as the home for the annual convention – a $45 million special events facility that opened in 2013. The center’s primary space will be configured for 11,000 seats for the NQC, with no seat more than 150 feet from the stage.
An all-star lineup of gospel music’s “who’s who” are featured throughout the week with showcases and nightly concerts delighting attendees.

NQC – the National Quartet Convention – was founded in 1957 by gospel music legend and former backup vocalist for Elvis Presley, J.D. Sumner who co-produced the event with James Blackwood. The annual convention was moved in later years to Nashville, TN and then to Louisville, KY where it was held for 20 years.
