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 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.

The BPO is very good. They have some really talented musicians and bring in popular artists to change up the music menu. The location is not great and parking is miserable, but once inside, you'll find that it's definitely worth the hassle.Once Uber comes to Buffalo, this will be a much more frequent place to visit for me. See you... More

I have attended many concerts at Kleinhans, from classic ( Itzhak Perlman) to pops (PrinceTribute) to theatrical ( Amadeus). The acoustics are impeccable and our very own incredible conductor, Joanne Falletta, leads the program to provide the Buffalo area it's world class music. This is a must attend facility in Buffalo: our proud gem!

Always a treat to see a concert here - the sound is perfect. Comfortable seating in the renovated auditorium, love the basement bar, and the ladies' lounge is lovely.

Then there are soooo many events in the Mary Seaton room...workshops,chamber concerts, recitals, weddings,and book fairs ...an amazing use of... More
