Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra

As the cultural ambassador of Buffalo, NY, the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under Music Director JoAnn Falletta presents more than 120 Classics, Pops and Youth Concerts each year. The BPO has toured widely across the United States, Canada and Europe.
The BPO was founded in 1935. Since 1940, it has made its home at Kleinhans Music Hall, a National Historic Landmark built for orchestral performance. William Steinberg, Josef Krips, Lukas Foss, Michael Tilson Thomas, Maximiano Valdes, Semyon Bychkov and Julius Rudel are among the luminaries who have served as music directors of the BPO. The orchestra has welcomed many distinguished guest performers and conductors, including Isaac Stern, Aaron Copland, Van Cliburn and Igor Stravinsky.
During the tenure of JoAnn Falletta, who has served as music director since 1999, the BPO has rekindled its history of NPR broadcasts and recordings, including the release of 37 new CDs on the NAXOS and Beau Fleuve labels. Their Naxos recording of John Corigliano’s “Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan” won two Grammys. For more information, visit
