The new Performance Center will bring a wider range of entertainment options to area families, as well as the region’s important tourist audiences, including the best of Broadway touring shows; will help local groups and individual artists take their work to the next level of excellence; and will attract the best performers from around the globe to Asheville.
By incorporating the latest technology, the center will also create new business opportunities to support TV, film and multi-media productions. It is being designed with digital transmission as a key goal of the building program. The multipurpose hall will offer recording capabilities to support broadcast programming and recording events in live HD.
The Performance Center's leadership is committed to supporting local firms, including minority- owned and women-owned businesses. Our key priorities also include energy efficiency, environmental quality and a fully sustainable environment for the performing arts.
The new Performance Center is the logical next step in advancing our region’s cultural life—so critical not only to attract tourists, but to serve area families, including teens, senior citizens and seasonal residents. Contact us today with your ideas for this important project!
