Buffalo, New York 


Kleinhans Music Hall 


The Kleinhans Music Hall opened in 1940 and has been the home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra since its opening. Located on Symphony Circle, Kleinhans Music Hall was built as part of a will by Edward and Mary Kleinhans, who left their estate totaling nearly $1 million to the Buffalo Foundation to build the music hall. Kleinhans Music Hall is a splendid example of modern architecture and was designed by the father and son team of Eliel and Eero Saarinen. The 2,800-seat music hall was specifically built to be the home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and in 1989 was declared a National Historic Landmark.
