Knox Concert Series
Since 1946, Knox Concert Series has hosted great acts and performers. From Vince Gill and Amy Grant, to Marvin Hamlisch, Chicago and more, Knox is recognized as one of Alabama’s premiere presenting organizations. This annual concert series brings world renowned artists to the Anniston Performs Arts Center Stage between September and April. Other previous performers include: Celtic Woman, Michael McDonald, and Sara Evans! This season’s line-up boasts, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, and the Rain-A Tribute to the Beatles.
The Knox Series gets its name from Carrie McClure Know, who after studying abroad and at Harvard, moved back home. With a small group of fellow Anniston musicians, they organized the Anniston Coral Club, which became the Anniston Music Club. After Carrie died suddenly, the club was renamed the Knox Music Club. The first concert of the series was a sellout and held at the Anniston High School Auditorium. Since then, the series has continued to bring world renowned acts to the Model City. In the 70s, the series was incorporated with a board of directors.
