Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Amazing acoustics”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The acoustics are outstanding in this facility, no matter where you sit. I would love to see Kleinhans used for many other types of performances outside of the BPO.

“I am never disappointed when we go to Kleinhans.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

All the music events that I have attended at Kleinhans have been a great experience. It is clean, comfy seats, and great atmosphere. Go early so you can get a parking space on the street. Jersey St and by the high school are great parking spaces. Just make sure you don't leave valuables in full view and put them in trunk..

“Beautiful Venue”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I go to Kleinhans to hear the BPO a lot. For a small city, Buffalo has a phenomenal philharmonic orchestra - full of talent and lead by world-renowned conductor Joann Falletta. As for Kleinhans, its simple yet beautiful wood design isn't overwhelming or breathtaking, but the acoustics are 5-star, the seats are comfortable, and there isn't a bad view of the stage anywhere. Believe it or not, Kleinhans seats just as many people as Carnegie Hall.

“No better place than Kleinhans Music Hall”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

No concert hall can compare with Kleinhan's accoustics. It has a world class reputation, along with an architecturally beautiful building. It's the only place to listen to the Philharmonic orchestra as it takes you away on an awesome musical journey.

“We give them the Very Best of Everything”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

How can anyone in the music industry-or anyone who lives music not love everything about Kleinhans? A yearly subscriber for many years- and continue while we can. Architecture is another top priority in the building of this magnificent music house.
