Why attend the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra?
Your Gateway to Buffalo’s Thriving Music Scene
Buffalo is renowned as one of the greatest cities to experience live music, and at the heart of all the cool things to do here is the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO). If you’ve never experienced the transformative power of live music, there’s no better introduction than a night at the BPO. Forget what you’ve heard about orchestras being stodgy or exclusive; we’re here to shatter those myths and invite you into the musical and cultural heartbeat of Western New York.
Dress Code? What Dress Code?
First things first: wear what you want. Really, we mean it. For some, a night at the BPO is a chance to dress to the nines. For others, it’s all about being comfortable. You do you.
The Soundtrack to Your Life (and More!)
When you think of an orchestra, classical music might be the first thing that comes to mind. But the BPO isn’t just about Beethoven and Bach. Our repertoire includes everything from iconic movie scores and orchestral favorites you’ll recognize instantly, to rock symphonies and special guest appearances by renowned celebrities. There’s something for everyone.
Pick Your Time, Pick Your Vibe
Early birds, we’ve got you covered with our Friday morning Coffee Concerts. Kickstart your day with a serving of live music, complimented by free coffee and doughnuts. For night owls, we offer concerts on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Sunday matinees.
Make It a Culinary Experience
Many of our patrons love to dine out before the curtain rises. And why wouldn’t you? Marcato, our in-house restaurant managed by the famed Oliver’s crew, offers delectable options to suit every palate. Alternatively, Buffalo’s thriving Elmwood and Allentown neighborhoods are brimming with restaurants for every taste and budget.
