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.

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

with great concerts and special events. I first went there at about age 7 or 8 and it is still a special place.

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!

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra is absolutely amazing! Have been to many performances over the years and am never disappointed. Run, don't walk to Kleinhans. If possible, dine downstairs before the performance, the food is delicious!!

Architecturally significant and acoustically perfect. A wonderful place to hear the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra playing anything from classical to pops to Led Zepellin.

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.
