A National Historic Landmark designed by Eliel and Eero Saarinen, the hall was constructed in 1940 as the permanent home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, it has also become home to Just Buffalo Literary Center's Babel Series and the Buffalo Chamber Music Society's performances. It is frequently used for weddings, corporate meetings, and performances by local organizations. Each spring, more than 10,000 people receive their high school or college diplomas on the Kleinhans stage.

Whether you are going to hear the BPO's Pops concerts, Christmas concerts or special guest concerts it is the most acoustically perfect building in Buffalo. There is not bad seat at Kleinhans Music Hall on Symphony Circle. Bring your children and introduce them to the philharmonic orchestra, it will change their lives.

BPO, guest conductors, classical guitar competition, Mozart, Grateful Dead music by the BPO......it won't sound better anywhere else. Known for the exceptional acoustics, Kleinhans is for any music lover.

The Buffalo Symphony, under the direction of JoAnn Faletta has never sounded better. I love the last seat on the aisle in the top row where I am wrapped in musicality. Buy a ticket!

Get there early and you can park in their lot for $10. The sound quality is unsurpassed. Although it shows signs of aging, it's still well kept. You're able to buy drinks and snacks.

The acoustics are really good. The crowd is typical of Buffalo, friendly, engaging, and accommodating in tight spaces. The seats as with most venues are a bit close, but for command performances everyone stands anyway.

Kleinhans has always been a Buffalo gem. Whatever your choice maybe from their venue, you will not be disappointed. The seating is comfortable and I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. Pre concert Dinner reservations are taken for Henry's if you choose at a fixed price. Although we did not have dinner I have heard it... More

Just saw a terrific concert, with incredible acoustics. The works of Charles Ives directed by JoAnn Falletta was a concert not to miss. What made the entire evening so great was making it a complete, trouble-free event, with absolutely no hassle. We made dinner reservations at Henry's @ Kleinhans at 5:30. We arrived to a nearly empty paring lot and... More
