5 Points Music Sanctuary
5 Points Music Sanctuary is relatively new to the Roanoke scene, opening in 2017. In this short time period 5 Points has had a great impact, bringing in national and international guests. 5 Points Music Sanctuary is an old church featuring a 2,000 sq/ft performance hall with a capacity just over 250 and a lower lever co-working space dedicated to music teaching studios, creative suites, and a 1,000 sq/ft rehearsal stage available for band rehearsals, classes, and various community uses.
According to the non-profit’s website the mission is to “celebrate the power of music to unite our audiences and fans from far and wide, while providing a critical platform to support our group music therapy program and raise awareness and support for those with hearing loss. This includes creating full access concert experiences for those with hearing loss. Tyler Godsey, 5 Points founder says, ‘Sound is not just meant to be heard. Rather, it is meant to be felt and seen as well. With our Subpac initiative, efforts to bring in ASL interpreters, preferential seating, professional lighting designs, or the future installation of an inductive loop, our goal is to facilitate the various ways in which those with hearing loss can benefit from the power of live music.'”
