Lou Whitney

The City of Springfield salutes Lou Whitney for his contribution to not only the Springfield music scene, but also his support of countless musicians and artists in their pursuit of careers in the music industry. He was a legendary figure in our musical history in Springfield, whose contributions will continue for years to come. Our condolences go out to his family.

We have been fortunate to share several hours with Lou over the past few months as he graciously agreed to participate in video interviews. Please enjoy our video of his acceptance speech at the Springfield Regional Arts Council “Ozzie” Awards in September 2014.
