The Hannibal Concert Association will present Branson pianist and “America’s Piano Showman,” Dino Kartsonakis for their final concert of the 2012-2013 HCA Season.  Dino will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 at the Roland Fine Arts Center on the campus of HLGU.  The concert is funded in part by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.

For the past 12 years Dino has entertained in Branson, giving spellbinding performances, including the most highly acclaimed Christmas show in Branson.  He reaches audiences internationally through “The Dino Show” on TBN. 

After discovering her son's prodigy-like talent on the piano, Mrs. Helen Kartsonakis enrolled Dino in piano lessons at age five. Years later, he trained at Juilliard and in conservatories in France and Germany. His numerous recordings (over 40) have received many well-deserved accolades including a Grammy Award for his involvement on The Apostle soundtrack, a Grammy nomination for "Chariots of Fire," and eight Gospel Music Association Dove Awards.

Without a Hannibal Concert Association season ticket, tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students.  Tickets will be available at the door prior to the performance only. HCA is not able to offer pre-sales at this time.  For more information about the concert go to hannibalarts.com and click on the Hannibal Concert Association icon.
