The Onondaga Historical Association is pleased to announce that Our Glorious Workplaces will return to an in-person format in its 22nd year. Join us Friday, October 29th at 6:00pm for a black-tie masquerade gala at the historic Landmark Theater.
OHA’s Our Glorious Workplaces event showcases how local businesses create and deliver products or services while emphasizing the historic impact on the larger community. Our 2021 event serves a two-fold purpose of celebrating the reopening of an iconic entertainment venue, and recognizing the 150th anniversary of the company that has been instrumental in retuning it to its former glory.
Since the 1920’s, the Loew’s State Theater has entertained young and old alike, from vaudeville acts and moving pictures to vast Broadway productions and movie premieres. The theater, more commonly known as “The Landmark”, has left its visitors with indelible memories of the theater’s opulence and grandeur. It remains a crown jewel of our arts community.
The Landmark represents thousands of projects completed by the Hueber-Breuer Company in the course of their six generations of leadership. The vision and values of the Breuer family, and the company, have had a profound impact on Central New York’s built environment, as well as our arts, cultural, educational, health, and human services organizations.
This reach has certainly been felt here at OHA. We have been fortunate to be both a partner and a beneficiary of Hueber-Breuer’s stewardship of our community. As the company approaches its sesquicentennial, it seems fitting that we return their generosity and celebrate this historic milestone in a venue that exemplifies our shared commitment to pride in place.
Our Glorious Workplaces event will begin with cocktails and a very special edition of our popular Ghostwalk with a “behind the scenes” tour of the theater, given by The Landmark’s very own spirits. Our guests will enjoy dinner on the stage, followed by a presentation by OHA’s Curator of History, Bob Searing. Enjoy an evening of fun, a special musical tribute to our honorees, and an opportunity to win on of a few unique prizes including tickets to the 2022 touring production of Hamilton.
This in-person event will take place with the appropriate COVID prevention measures in effect, complying with both local and federal guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests. More information on the specific rules and regulations will be announced closer to the event.
Please join us in celebrating the Hueber-Breuer Company and their commitment and connection to our community’s history, consider becoming a sponsor of the event, and rejoice in the reopening of the incredible Landmark Theater.
