Asheville, NC – The City of Asheville is launching a community survey to inform the future design of Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. During the next few months, U.S. Cellular Center staff will engage the public as well as faculty stakeholders to determine how to best update the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium to meet community and patron needs.

The survey, which will be open from June 19-30, is available at this link. Hard copies of the survey will also be available in the City of Asheville Recreation centers.

Once complete, the survey results will be given to the design team, led by Earl Swennson Associates Architects, for their consideration as they draft programming and conceptual designs for Thomas Wolfe Auditorium updates.

“This is a great opportunity for us to hear what our community wants to see from potential renovations,” said USCC General Manager Chris Corl. “It’s important that we give our residents a voice in this project.”

Renovation of Thomas Wolfe Auditorium will a long-term project. Staff estimate it will take two to four years to secure financing, followed by two years of construction/renovation of the site.

To complete the project, there will require a significant community based collaboration in funding.  Potential partners in project funding.

  • Capital project funds City of Asheville
  • Harrah’s Cherokee naming rights revenue
  • Additional sponsorships
  • Private sector donations
  • Other governmental agencies

“We are inviting the public to become a part of the conversation regarding the renovations of Thomas Wolfe Auditorium into a state-of-the-art venue, that hosts the Asheville Symphony, national touring acts, and major stage  productions,” said Corl.

About the Asheville Civic Center

First opened in 1975, Thomas Wolfe Auditorium has a seating capacity of 2,431. The auditorium is the home of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra and has hosted such acts as BB King, Willie Nelson, Jerry Seinfeld, even Elvis Presley, and many other nationally renowned musicians, dance and opera companies and stage plays.

In July 2018, the City of Asheville Finance Committee approved a process to explore licensing agreements with respect to the naming of the Civic Center.  The current naming rights are licensed to U.S. Cellular Inc. as the U.S. Cellular Center. City staff’s goal was “to contract a licensing agreement with a notable company or individual that is culturally and socially compatible with the local community.”

Asheville City Council voted 6 to 1 May 28 to accept an offer for a 5- to 10-year naming rights agreement with Harrah’s Cherokee for the Civic Center. The new agreement will replace the existing contract with U.S. Cellular that expires Dec. 31, 2019. The vote concludes a year-long effort to explore licensing agreements with respect to the naming of the Civic Center property.  This vote signals a significant interest in exploring moving forward with renovation to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.

Harrah’s Cherokee, a wholly owned instrumentality of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, offers a total term potential of $5.75 million over up to 10 years. It includes annual naming license fee for both the Civic Center, the Civic Center Parking Garage, and $750,000 in funds specifically dedicated to fan experience improvements such as public Wi-Fi and digital video display infrastructure installation. The offer also includes full reimbursement of up to $250,000 for signage and branding transition to replace existing signage and branding to display the new facility name.

Asheville, NC – Asheville City Council voted on May 28 to accept an offer for a 5- to 10-year naming rights agreement with Harrah’s Cherokee for the Asheville Civic Center in downtown Asheville. The new agreement will replace the existing contract with U.S. Cellular that expires December 31, 2019. The vote concludes a year-long effort to explore licensing agreements with respect to the naming of the Civic Center property.

“The City of Asheville is looking forward to growing our relationship with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians through the naming rights for the Civic Center,” said Mayor Esther Manheimer. “We appreciate the investment they are making in downtown Asheville.”

“We would also like to thank U.S. Cellular for their sponsorship during the last nine years,” the Mayor added.

“We are very excited to embark on this new adventure with Harrah’s Cherokee. As part of the new agreement, there are several new fan experience initiatives that we will be able to bring into fruition,” said Chris Corl, General Manager of the U.S. Cellular Center Asheville. “The Harrah’s Cherokee brand has a strong, supportive position in Western North Carolina, and we are excited to be a part of that relationship.”

Once the new contract goes into effect, the Civic Center will be renamed the Harrah’s Cherokee Center Asheville.

The venue is home to the ExploreAsheville.com Arena and Thomas Wolfe Auditorium and has served as the host site for Fed Cup international tennis events, Southern Conference Basketball Championships, and Warren Haynes Presents Christmas Jam in recent years.

The naming process

In July 2018, the City of Asheville Finance Committee approved a process to explore licensing agreements with respect to the naming of the Civic Center.  The current naming rights are licensed to U.S. Cellular Inc. as the U.S. Cellular Center. City staff’s goal was “to contract a licensing agreement with a notable company or individual that is culturally and socially compatible with the local community.”

Following a formal process, City staff presented two offers to the Civic Center Commission. The proposals included an extension with U.S. Cellular Inc. and a proposed new agreement with Harrah’s Cherokee Resort, an enterprise of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

Additionally, the offer includes full reimbursement of up to $250,000 for signage and branding transition to replace existing signage and branding to display the new facility name.

ABOUT LINDSEY STIRLING:

Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. In the over five years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music. After bowing at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Dance/Electronic Album Chart, holding #1 on the Classical Album Chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album,” her sophomore opus Shatter Me would not only garner an RIAA Gold certification, but it would rank as the #2 Dance/Electronic Album and #1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts. Attracting over 10 million subscribers and 2 billion-plus views on YouTube, in 2015 Forbes placed Lindsey at #4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headline tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut The Only Pirate at the Party—co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey—became a New York Times Bestseller.  Lindsey’s third-studio album Brave Enough, debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, went on to score the #1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album”. Last year, Lindsey released her first ever holiday album titled Warmer in the Winter.  Featuring classic and original songs, the album went on to become the #1 new Christmas album of 2017, ahead of pop music heavyweights such as Gwen Stefani and Sia.  It was also the best-selling new holiday album and the best performing holiday album on Pandora with over 40 million spins.    She is re-releasing her top-selling Christmas album this year with a few new songs as well as some Christmas classics.   She was also the runner-up on Season 25 of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” with her partner Mark Ballas.  Stirling is currently co-heading a US tour with rock band, Evanescence, and it’s one of Live Nation’s 10 best-selling amphitheater tours of the summer.  Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.
