Community

Creating extraordinary musical moments with our community.

The BPO is proud to offer diverse concerts and programming by a world-class symphony orchestra to educate, entertain, and enrich the broadest possible audiences within and beyond the Western New York region.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Kleinhans Music Hall. The safety of our musicians, staff, volunteers and community is our #1 priority, and we will continue to follow all local, state and federal COVID-19 guidelines. 

In order to further protect the health, safety and enjoyment of all, we will be implementing a COVID-19 vaccination requirement and a masking policy for all staff, volunteers, performers and audiences at Kleinhans Music Hall.

At this time, all children under the age of 12 will be required to show proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the concert start time. Children 12 and up may provide either proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of full vaccination.

These protocols will go into effect beginning September 11 through October 30, 2021 and may be extended if community transmission levels of COVID-19 remain high.
