Kind words of support for our new building project.
Our community currently lacks an acoustically designed concert hall, a black box theater and a ballroom/caterers kitchen designed to accommodate 300 guests for dinner. InConcert Sierra thoughtfully identified and designed their project to address our needs.
I often produce events for a variety of non-profit organizations. Our community is in great need of a banquet facility/ballroom/conference center that will accommodate 300-seats. There is no facility in the area that is available for this capacity, and none with a large kitchen to facilitate food service at events. The Crown Point Project is a venue that will economically benefit our community and allow for growth in the nonprofit and tourism sectors.

We enthusiastically support your goal of this project! We are happy to see a concert hall in our community as you have imagined. And the possibility of adding a Black Box Theatre, Conference Center, Offices, and more is icing on the cake.
In short, we believe that your proposed project would provide a major benefit to classical music lovers and indeed our whole community.

This building will fill a significant number of arts and other community needs: create a 10,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, acoustic concert hall; a Blackbox theater; and a conference/event space with an adjoining, already existing kitchen. There are no venues such as this within a 50-mile radius that have the amenities needed to support the growth of our nonprofit sector.
I strongly support this project and think it will create a sustainable future for the Grass Valley/Nevada City arts and culture district, encourage tourism, expand city and county revenues, and provide for community vitality that will enhance our highly desirable area.

It provides an opportunity, not just an economic opportunity, and not just for tourists who come to town, but it also provides an opportunity for our community to participate in the arts both as performers and as patrons and as students who want to learn about art. So, this is incredible and I thank InConcert Sierra for their persistence and patience with coming up with this proposal.

Hospice of the Foothills have often found ourselves with a need for a 300-seat banquet facility/conference center for fundraising events, community presentations, and clinical education. We look forward to having such a facility in our community. The promise of a space that will help us build capacity, and enrich our community is exciting and we are in full support.
- Viv Tipton, Hospice of the Foothills
The facility can be a great economic driver for the community as it will require a substantial amount of “out of area” participation at the venue to make it work. This brings in dollars from out of the area, where then can multiply here in Nevada County.

The ICS project offers a rare acoustically designed venue for music which will be a jewel in the crown of Grass Valley. It will have great appeal to world class artists and offer a supreme listening environment to diverse audiences. Having a venue with great acoustics is increasingly rare across the Country and this venue will become a beacon for high quality acoustic concerts.
The ICS project celebrates community and provides an attractive gathering place for community endeavors and outreach. It will attract visitors and investment to our community, as well as encourage growth and educational opportunities.

Congratulations to you, your Board, and staff on the success of your Raising the Roof event! I was truly amazed by the progress that has been achieved. Your dedication to bringing a modern event complex and music hall to our community is inspiring and will undoubtedly have a profound impact on our arts, culture, and economic vitality.
