About: Open in Buffalo's West Side since October 1940, Kleinhans Music Hall has been dubbed a National Historic Landmark as one of the most magisterial classical music venues in the world. Kleinhans is the residence of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, a fiercely competitive and elite group of musicians, while the 90-year-old Buffalo Chamber Music Society sets up shop as well. In addition to regular BPO performances, Kleinhans books national touring acts also perform in Kleinhans.
