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.

There is not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are outstanding and the flow of patrons glides through several well-positioned entrances to the venues. Try the restaurant downstairs if you get the chance.

I've been to Carnegie Hall in NYC so famous for its beautiful acoustics. However, I think the music played in Kleinhans sounds richer and even more beautiful. Been to many, many performances and have never been disappointed, even in the cheap seats!

I went there for a business workshop. The structure of the buildings is very comfortable. This is a nice place to conduct events and stage programs.

On May 14th, I had the pleasure of hearing the outstanding presentation given by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra's concert presentation of George Gershwin's Classic Opera, "Porgy and Bess" Saturday evening. The Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus accompanied by 22 high school voice majors from the Buffalo Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts (BAVPA) added a richness in tone quality to the... More

My husband and I go here often to hear the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. The hall itself is beautiful and the acoustics are outstanding. If you only go here, it's worth a trip to Buffalo!

The style and coloring were a bit dated but honestly I think I prefer that to some of the modern ones of today. It doesn't look like much when you first walk in and honestly I thought the way it was constructed wouldn't be as good for sound but boy was I wrong! It helped that the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra... More

This beautiful concert hall is the home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, where you can hear symphonies and Pops concerts, alike. You will also find other instrumentalists and singers performing here. This music hall is know for its acoustics, and you will hear as well in the corner of the back balcony as you would in a front seat.

What a fantastic concert hall, outstanding acoustics, not a bad seat in the house. Helpful ushers, no problems finding a parking space. Went to see The Hitmen Group, top notch entertainment in a well maintained facility. There is a small room on the second floor that gives a history of Kleinhans Music Hall, quite interesting. Great facility all around!

So glad you enjoyed your experience at the hall and the Hit Men concert! The exhibit is brand-new this fall. It's something we've wanted to do for some time, and we're pleased to be able to share the story of the hall with everyone who comes to enjoy events there. We hope you come to see us again soon!
