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.

“Fabulous art deco architecture and acoustics”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a terrific venue to hear concerts. It's comfortable and has amazing acoustics. The grounds surrounding the building are also very nice.

“A gem of modern architecture”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

A rare collaboration between the Saarinens, father and son, with timeless yet modern appeal. We did not hear a concert there, but the acoustics are supposedly tip-top.

“Poor Quality Audio at Bill Maher Concert 7/14/13”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Audio was disappointing unless he held the mic right under his mouth could hardly hear. Sat in 7th
row.
Also Hearing Assisted Devices were substandard and hard to use. NOT WHAT ONE WOULD EXPECT OF A CONCERT MUSIC HALL!!!! No good guidance where to get the devices, no one
had knowledge of how they work, half ot the available devices had NO Battery in them. Functioned
poorly and my husband missed about 80% of the audio, even with the devices and digital hearing aids!!
Also the content was mediocre and concert too short. NOT WORTH $200.00 for $65.00 tickets!!! It was appalling that in a music hall the audio was so poor!!

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

This is truly a Buffalo gem and the shows here are always amazing. I recommend checking out a BPO performance and especially any other concerts that come through. Ben Folds Five show this past year was amazing and the sound is perfect!
