Summer is the perfect time to seek out new adventures. A chance to experience a great concert with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra awaits you just across the border. Pack a picnic supper and dine next to the reflecting pool of Kleinhans Music Hall, situated minutes from the Peace Bridge in one of Buffalo’s most architecturally interesting neighborhoods. Leave the summer heat behind as you enter the cool modern interior of the Saarinen-designed concert hall, designated as a National Historic Landmark. Relax and enjoy informal summer concerts by the Grammy award-winning BPO in acoustical perfection. Your evening continues with a post-concert party, where you can meet the musicians and socialize with your friends.

Whether they’re presenting a world premiere, unearthing a hidden gem, or allowing audiences to experience classical masterworks live, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has been providing an escape from the mundane and a chance to experience the extraordinary since 1935. Make the short, easy trip across the border and find out why performances and recordings by JoAnn Falletta and the BPO have garnered international acclaim.

Check out the orchestra’s 2013-14 season, with stars like Bernadette Peters, Yo-Yo Ma and Chris Botti; enjoy classics, pops and BPO Rocks concerts. Exciting programs including Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s “Pathetique,” and the world premiere of a tango concerto for cello, make returning to Buffalo well worth the trip.
