The familiar St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater will undergo a renaming following a shift in naming rights sponsorship.


Effective Oct. 20, the concert venue will embrace its new identity as the Empower Federal Credit Union Amphitheater at Lakeview. Empower’s acquisition of the naming rights, previously held by St. Joseph’s hospital for half a decade, aligns with the credit union’s mission to fortify its local presence.

“Investing back into the communities we inhabit is pivotal for us. With our roots and major membership base in Syracuse and Central New York, endorsing a venue as revered as the Amphitheater aligns with our vision,” remarked Chris Keller, Empower Federal Credit Union’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Acknowledging the change, St. Joseph’s expressed gratitude for the national visibility the name-in-title sponsorship accorded them. Emphasizing the therapeutic essence of music, they reflected on the honor of being the venue’s notable affiliate since 2018 and expressed their commitment to facilitating a seamless transition to the new sponsorship.

As the Amphitheater steps into its new chapter, it gears up to host its first concert under the Empower Federal Credit Union banner: Lainey Wilson’s “Country’s Cool Again” performance, scheduled for June 21, 2024.
