I come here a lot to see the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Perform. This Hall is specifically designed to sound simply amazing! Definitely a lovely place to see the BPO Perform.

There is no better place to hear a concert than Kleinhans. Acoustics are phenomenal. If there is one downside, however, it is the parking. Very small lot near the building, with most parking on the adjacent side streets.

I never tire of it whether I'm there for a concert or other large gathering. The acoustics are fantastic. I was fortunate enough to see the... More

I've been fortunate enough to have season tickets for the BPO for several years and applaud the fabulous programs and innovative thinking that makes this an excellent way to spend time. Often there are free pre and post performance events like dances and the food served at the downstairs restaurant on performance evenings is terrific. Love the other uses for... More

Love this place for BPO (Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra) performances. Season ticket guest for more than five seasons due to the generosity of a good friend. The acoustics are incredible no matter where you are seating in the hall.

We purchase the 5 concerts per season and enjoy every year. The selections are varied so it's not just the standards. Worth the price for sure! We usually add on dinner at Henry's (downstairs) and go to the educational segment at 7:00 PM in the concert hall. Our seats are in the first balcony and we find the sound quality... More
