From its inception in the fall of 1935, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has performed well over a thousand Youth Concerts at Kleinhans Music Hall and throughout Western New York. Student attendance from K through 12 is estimated to be at least 1,200,000 students. A documented history of BPO Youth Concerts (programs, photographs, etc.) is currently underway via the efforts of BPO Archive volunteers.
