College Programming


Contributing to the pipeline of diverse talent.

The BPO is proud to present educational programming accessible to all students through live concerts, in-school programs, and digital resources. Each year we work to ensure that our programs introduce students to the best orchestral repertoire, encourage active participation through interactive program elements, and provide an engaging and memorable experience.

All patrons over the age of 12 who attend BPO performances at Kleinhans Music Hall will be required to provide proof of vaccination and identification at every performance. Children age 12 and under must show proof of a recent negative test for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will also be accepted for children ages 5-11.

With a valid college ID, students may purchase a BPO Student Pass for just $29 for the whole year!


The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra hosts incredible guest artists each year. Now we are making many of these masters available to the community in an intimate learning experience. Select artists work one-on-one with local students in front of a live audience.

Musically Speaking

One hour prior to each weekend Classics concert, join a guest speaker in the Main Hall for a discussion of the performance.


The BPO hosts student internships for fall, spring and summer semesters.

Composer Opportunities

Each year, the BPO offers budding composers the opportunity to work with professional composers, conductors and musicians through residencies, professional development workshops and new music readings.
