Proctors and Mazzone Management showcase new downtown Schenectady performance and banquet facility

January 27, 2011

(SCHENECTADY, N.Y.) Proctors and Mazzone Management celebrated their new partnership today by unveiling KeyHall at Proctors, a 12,000-square-foot performance and banquet facility that is another significant component in the revitalization of downtown Schenectady.

The former bank at 436 State St. will host musical performances, business functions, weddings, fundraisers and other special events.  Proctors recently selected Mazzone Management to oversee all catering at KeyHall through its Mansion Catering division.

“We’re thrilled to introduce KeyHall at Proctors and to work with Mazzone Management on this exciting new venture,” said Proctors CEO Philip Morris. “Proctors has been a model for success in downtown Schenectady and we’re proud to further contribute to revitalization in the area through the introduction of this premier event venue.”

Proctors purchased the former KeyBank in March.  The three-story structure was built during the early 20th century and includes a 4,000-square-foot marble atrium with three-story ceilings.  Most of the building has been left intact and remaining materials were repurposed within the facility.  Upgrades include a new connection between KeyHall and the Arcade to facilitate access from Proctors.  A 14,000-pound vault door from a demolished safe has also been relocated within KeyHall.  Additionally, the facility has been repainted and the marble floors refinished.

Mazzone Management Group brings a wealth of experience to KeyHall at Proctors, through its ownership and operation of Glen Sanders Mansion and Angelo’s Tavolo in Scotia; Aperitivo Bistro in Schenectady; Angelo’s 677 Primein Albany; and Prime at Saratoga National at Saratoga National Golf Club. Mansion Catering also oversees the catering operations at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga; provides the food services for workers building the GLOBALFOUNDRIES facility in Malta; and provides event management and catering services for weddings, fundraisers and social events.

“Proctors graciously selected us as a partner in the latest downtown Schenectady revitalization project,” said Mazzone Management Owner Angelo Mazzone. “We pride ourselves on providing impeccable food and service and will bring the same dedication to KeyHall at Proctors that we display at other premier venues throughout the region. My first venture was the Glen Sanders Mansion so this project means a great deal to me on both a personal and professional level as a business owner whose headquarters are located in Schenectady County.”

The ribbon cutting was the first of many events coming to KeyHall at Proctors in the near future.  On Thursday, February 17, KeyHall at Proctors will host a Grand Opening Community Celebration to showcase the facility and catering services of Mazzone Management.  Donations and proceeds from the event will benefit the Downtown Ambassador Program, which offers job training and skill development to individuals recruited by the City Mission of Schenectady.
