Charlotte Symphony Orchestra Tribute Concert for Anne Springs Close

Save the Date for September 25th at the Comporium Amphitheater

The Anne Springs Close Greenway announced details this week regarding a tribute concert planned in honor of Anne Springs Close at the Comporium Amphitheater for Sunday, Sept. 25 featuring the internationally acclaimed Charlotte Symphony Orchestra (CSO).

Close, Greenway founder and matriarch who passed away in August 2021 at the age of 95, was a dedicated supporter and attendee of the CSO, and the free community concert is being offered to commemorate her love for the arts and her lifelong dedication to bringing people together in the outdoors.

“Anne Close was a passionate supporter of the arts, as well as the environment. She championed many causes, and we are happy to host a concert in partnership with The Foundation for The Carolinas and the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra as a tribute to that legacy. Mrs. Close believed deeply that all people, regardless of circumstance, should have access to the arts and the outdoors – two things that she loved dearly.”

John Gordon, CEO of Leroy Springs & Co., managing company of Anne Springs Close Greenway
