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.

Built by a wealthy family in Buffalo's golden era, this stunning building in an historic neighborhood is worth a visit. The main auditorium is spectacular and has renowned acoustics. The modern building is well maintained...new carpeting, seating, restaurant and rest rooms ensure the legacy of this building. See the original reflecting pools, empty for a long time, now made shallow... More

We went to the BPO's holiday Pops concert. The acoustics were superb. The Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus was also there and performed several Christmas songs. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

You won't be disappointed hearing a program at this lovely venue in a historic district of Buffalo, NY. Optional dining available from one of Buffalo's best restaurateurs. Parking lots available but still limited based on popularity of program.

We went to Kleinhans to watch the Glen Miller Orchestra - it was delightful!! The setting there is beautiful off of a historic circle called Symphony Circle. The building... More

I have been going here since I was a kid on school field trips, but Kleinhans is even better as an adult. The theater is beautiful, and even though I have only seen stand-up here twice in recent years, I know the place is known for its grat acoustics. Parking can be tricky however. May have to settle for parking... More

I've never been inside but I love just walking around it. It's a unique design & finely crafted. A gem in one of my favourite cities in America!
