The Sally Ann Hall Spirit of the Symphony Award was created in 2007 by the Charlotte Symphony to honor the memory of one of its most devoted patrons. Sally Ann was dedicated to all of the arts in Charlotte, but her greatest passion was classical music, a love inherited from her mother and grandmother. A member of the Charlotte Symphony Board, Sally Ann also served as President of the Oratorio Singers. In 1994, she oversaw the successful merger of these two organizations. An unassuming advocate for the Symphony, she worked tirelessly to promote its musical excellence and vitality. This award honors her legacy.
