Pigeon Forge, TN – The 57th annual NQC (National Quartet Convention) is in full swing at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN. Clarke Beasley, NQC Executive Director, reports that an all-time attendance record has been set for the first-half of the week with the 11,500 seat LeConte Center sold out for Tuesday and Wednesday nights of the annual event.
A surprise appearance by Connie Hopper – who has been battling breast cancer again after being in remission for 35 years – was the highlight of Wednesday evening. The beloved singer appeared onstage as The Hoppers‘ hit song, “I’ve Come Too Far,” began to play. The crowd leapt to their feet in thunderous applause and praise to God, welcoming Mrs. Hopper back to NQC. There wasn’t a dry in the place as Connie spoke about having the ‘peace that passeth all understanding’ during this latest health scare.
The National Quartet Convention is the only event of the year where fans can see and hear their favorite artists at a single event, and then meet them and purchase their products. Music lovers can enjoy their favorite music all day and night, as music spectaculars begin each morning and continue until at least 11 PM each evening.
Although all evening concerts are sold out at this time, passes still remain for many of the afternoon events. For a complete schedyle of events,please visit
