Have been here many times. The acoustics are fabulous. Virtually no bad seat in the small auditorium. The only downside, parking can be a pain in the neck. One of those places that could be easily overlooked but should not be. There are many great restaurants in the immediate area for an after performance dinner.

I have been at Kleinhans a number of times to hear the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Always great place to listen to a variety of music including classical and rock & roll. Good size, but if you go to listen to piano concerts, get seats on the left hand side of the stage to watch the pianist hands. The volunteers are... More

Great shows, the sound system can be very dissappointing, I prefer the A Section, hopefully no one tall in stature will sit in front of you. I always meet someone interesting sitting next to me. There are still friendly people always willing to be neighborly.

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.

Kleinhans Music Hall has been a Buffalo landmark since 1940 and is as fresh and exciting as it was back then. Actually, I'm not that old but do remember going there in the 50s. 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
