Kleinhans is a gem. Its world-class acoustics make any concert here special. Recent renovations have made it more comfortable. The Buffalo Philharmonic is spectacularly good if they happen to be playing or accompanying an artist here. Buffalo is blessed to have this fabulous venue and...More

The Saarinen architecture of the hall is a visual and acoustic triumph. The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra is first rate.

I don't care for huge stadium environments. Kleinhans is perfect. It has great sound quality, you don't have to fight for parking as there is an ample parking lot. It's not huge, but big enough. Love it.

I've always been a fan of classical music and I have heard many concerts here over the years. They say that it is the most acoustically perfect building in the States and I believe it.

Kleinhans is a great place to listen to the Buffalo Philharmonic, listen to a guest musician, or attend a graduation. A very spacious music hall

This music hall is a good spot to watch some plays that they do show at Kleinhan's Music Hall. Listening to the Buffalo Orchestra as well when they have concerts is a very cool experience as well.

One of the few smaller venues to hear music. If there's an artist playing here you'd be wise to secure tickets at this venue.
