“Glorious weather, with plenty of dust, tempted crowds of amusement seekers to the matinees yesterday, and the number of ladies arrayed in their spring fashion attire cheered the hearts of the anxious managers. First at Irving Hall we had Pattison’s second piano matinee, at which Miss Clementine Barnard, Miss Antonia Henne and Messrs. Strini, Poznanski, Severini, Colby and Groscurth assisted the pianist. The piano part of the the [sic] programme, consisted of Goria’s duet and a concert polka for two pianos, played by Mr. Pattison and Miss Barnard, Liszt’s Campanella, Chopin’s Funeral March, De Myer’s Cricket Polka, and the Doctor of Alcantara, all played by Mr. Pattison, and the vocal part comprised selections from Rossini, Verdi, Beyer, and a Norwegian echo song. The matinee was in general very successful.”

“…Mr. Pattison gave his second matinée on Saturday, at Irving Hall, and at this he introduced Miss Clementine Barnard in two duets with himself, the first of which—Goria’s ‘March Triumphale,’ for two piano’s [sic] was the better performance. Signor Severeni, Strini, and Miss Antonia Henne were the vocalists.”
