About
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 already reviewed this performance by the Irish Classical Theatre and Buffalo Philharmonic but would add that this venue is top notch - wonderful acoustics, great ambience and world class facilities. Looking forward to visiting again.

I have been here many times for all types of events, seasonal, classical and popular music. Acoustics are superb. The building is accessible to wheelchairs.I have always enjoyed my visits, except for parking. Parking is horrendous!

A Magical Mystery Tour
Nov 2019 • Solo
11/23/19 Although we attended the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour with the BPO. The magical Mystery is the Beauty and Acoustics of a wold class facility.

There is no bad seat in the house and the sound is just phenomenal. The seating is also very comfortable. We were in the balcony. Great sound and sight lines.

I was surprised by the large reception room and restaurant in the basement. Even the bathrooms were remarkable.

Buffalo should be proud of this venue.
If you have never been there, treat your self to a great experience.

Well worth your time to see and event and or experience the artistic power of our own BPO.

A beautiful acoustic interior with a not so great exterior
Sep 2019
its all about getting past the exterior and decay... Once inside, the beautiful main hall is both beautiful visually and sonically ...

My FIRST Time, and I hope it is not my last!!!!
May 2019 • Friends
This was my first time at KLEINHANS. I was there with a seniors group for AN AMERICAN SALUTE a performance of the BPO (Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra) and the BUFFALO PHILHARMONIC CHORUS an soloist Rachel Potter. The performance was fantastic. Complimentary coffee, tea, donuts and bagels were offered in the hour preceding the start of the show. I hope I have another opportunity to go to KLEINHANS in the future.

A treasured part of Buffalo’s architectural heritage
Dec 2018 • Friends
This building is a classic example of late 1930s streamlined architecture. Designed by the noted architects Ariel and Elietzer Saarinen, the 2400 seat music hall is considered one of the most acoustically ideal performance spaces in United States. The entire building, inside and out, can be enjoyed as an example of elegant and functional early mid-century design

Amazing Acoustics
Apr 2019 • Couples
Date of Visit: Saturday, April 6, 2019
Our first time to Kleinhans was to see Kristin Chenoweth in concert.
This was quite an experience.
The building may not be impressive in appearance, but the REAL beauty is the sound.
The designers of this care about the QUALITY of music that you hear.

every seat is amazing. you hear everything perfectly.
This is one heck of an amazing concert venue.
If you get the chance to go here - DO SO... it is spectacular

parking: this is a challenge. there is a small parking lot - so you MAY get a spot there, but if not - you are left looking for parking on the side streets around the area. this can lead to a walk of up to to 5 - 10 minutes to get to where you are going. this may be more challenging for people with disabilities, or even wearing high heels.
