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.

What a wonderful gem this music hall is - concerts are such a treat in the auditorium. Classical concerts are phenomenal, and it doesn't matter where you sit - all seats are good.

My wife and I have been going to several performances every year for about 15 years. It is always a worthwhile night out with top notch entertainment. Not a "cheap" ticket but never have regretted going to any performance there.

I was here recently to see the BPO and some elementary school students collaborate for an interactive concert. The acoustics are awesome. All seats in the house are good, workers/ushers were so pleasant.

We saw some musicians from the BPO and the Youth Orchestra play here. What a talented group of kids. We were so blown away with their performance. This venue is a great place for any concert.
