A concert or stage performance here makes for no less an experience than at any regular theater. It is generally used for school performances, dance recitals and plays. However, it has the potential to become a venue for bigger performances as well. This is amply displayed by the magnificent annual performance at the Center by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
