Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra

Kleinhans Music Hall

370 Pennsylvania Street
Buffalo, NY 14201

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra enjoys a fine reputation around the world, especially among experienced musicians, composers and conductors.One will be hard pressed to find a major soloist who has not performed with the Philharmonic - from Jascha Heifetz to Itzhak Perlman, from Jennie Tourel to Jessye Norman, from Artur Rubinstein to Van Cliburn, from Danny Kaye to Yo-Yo Ma. The list of conductors is likewise impressive with names like Leonard Bernstein, Igor Stravinsky, Neville Marriner, Henry Mancini and a host of others.

Perhaps the Orchestra's greatest accomplishment is its contribution to the artistic life of Western New York, made possible by more than six decades of support from its dedicated patrons. The Orchestra has performed over a thousand Youth Concerts for more than two million students on the Niagara Frontier as well as many concerts at campuses across the United States. Under the able direction of JoAnn Falletta, the Philharmonic averages more than 100 community performances each year bringing orchestral music to audiences throughout the region.

Principal Pops Conductor, Marvin Hamlisch, who also holds the position of Principal Pops Conductor with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC., directs the ambitious schedule of Buffalo Philharmonic Pops Concerts each summer at Artpark.
