        BCMS has been a permanent resident of Kleinhans Music Hall since the venue was dedicated on 12 October 1940. Founded in 1924, BCMS began its Kleinhans residency on 11 November 1940 with a performance by the Busch Quartet in the Mary Seaton Room.

From that moment, all BCMS performances have been hosted by Kleinhans Music Hall, consistent with the original intent and design of the Hall.
