Patrick Henry Hughes To Appear At NQC 2008

May 16, 2008 By: Aaron Category: NQC, SG And Other Genres, SG Industry News

From an SN Press Release:

Louisville, KY – The National Quartet Convention has announced the special guest appearance of Patrick Henry Hughes to the 2008 National Quartet Convention. The event is set to take place during the week of September 8 through 13 at the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center in Louisville, KY.

According to NQC Vice President, Clarke Beasley, Hughes will make a special appearance on Thursday, September 11. “We are thrilled to have this extremely gifted young man as a part of the 2008 NQC. His life and the devotion of his family have literally inspired our entire nation, and we believe his performance and testimony at NQC will be talked about for years to come.”

Hughes is a remarkable young man who was born without eyes and without the ability to fully straighten his arms and legs, making him unable to walk. Additionally, steel rods were surgically attached to Hughes’ spine to correct scoliosis. Despite unfathomable circumstances, Hughes overcame many physical adversities and has excelled as a musician and student. Hughes first began playing piano at just nine months of age, and currently participates in the University of Louisville School of Music Marching and Pep Bands. A virtuoso pianist, vocalist and trumpet player, Hughes has competed in numerous musical competitions and has been featured on ESPN, ABC-TV’s Extreme Make Over Home Edition, People Magazine and Sports Illustrated, just to name a few.
