From September to June, visitors can catch a concert nearly every weekend, ranging from classical masterworks to pops superstars. The orchestra's home is Kleinhans Music Hall, located at the nexus of several of Buffalo's most vibrant neighborhoods and designated a National Historic Landmark.

Last night I went to the BPO to hear their tribute to the Oscars. The music was amazing but I loved to see how much the conductor and musicians loved what they do.
