Who We Support And Why: Proctors Theatre and Universal Preservation Hall

Philanthropy is a Schrader and Company core value.

We have recently decided to show support to two of the most important arts venues in our region, Proctors Theatre in Schenectady, and Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs, not only because they offer world-class entertainment that keeps our communities vital and fun, but because the arts need our support now more than ever.

It’s no secret that live music venues and the arts in general were extremely hard hit during the pandemic. Lockdowns and isolation kept us all indoors and away from the concerts and programs that these venues rely upon to stay open.

Both Proctors and UPH are historic buildings with long and glittering histories of attracting some of the top performers and musicians from around the world.

While we all look forward to gathering once again under their beautiful roofs to enjoy the entertainment they provide, they can count on patronage from us, and their community at large, to support their mission to bring the arts to our region for all of us to enjoy.
