UPDATE: Dino to have his own NQC showcase
Yesterday, I checked Dino’s schedule (EDIT: 8/5/2011: Broken link removed) and found that he is scheduled to make an appearance at NQC this year, on Thursday, September 11, at 2:30 P.M. Other than that this will be a showcase appearance of some sort, it’s not immediately evident whether this will be part of the Parade of Pianos or whether he will be given his own separate showcase. The Parade of Pianos has not been on Thursdays in recent years, but the Gaither / Signature Sound showcase could have led to a re-scheduling of the event.
An email is on its way to the inboxes of a few of the applicable decision-makers; I will update this post with any additional information as it’s received.
UPDATE (1/23, 11:25 AM). I heard via email from Clarke Beasley that Dino will be doing his own (separate) showcase this year. He also answered commenter Donna’s question; Gerald Wolfe will again host the Parade of Pianos.
