It is frequently used for weddings, corporate meetings, and performances by local organizations.

Reviewed May 14, 2012

The accoustics in this Saaranin designed building are perfect for all musical concerts. It is a treat to be able to sit in this building and listen to the Buffalo Philharmonic perform.

“Always an Evening to Remember”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

This is a very convenient and well kept concert venue. The parking is simple and quite reasonable. Of course the shining star is JoAnn Falletta who brings innovative programs and outstanding guest artists such as: Van Cliburn to the Buffalo Philharmonic. Her energetic conducting style and the love and respect between she and the musiciands contributes to top notch performances.If you enjoy classical music,attending one of her concerts is a must.
