Program Details

Last concert of the Popular Garden concert series, 1867. Program comprised of the most popular pieces from the season.

All of the citations bill this event as the "Last Grand Sunday Concert," which was a subset of the Popular Garden Concert series. (These Sunday performances are also sometimes billed as "sacred concerts;" see Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 6th on 06/16/67 and Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 12th on 06/23/67.) A season pass for $10, which was offered at the beginning of the Popular Garden series in June, included admission to the Sunday concerts.

No concert was given as part of the Popular Garden series on Saturday, September 14.

The citations do not provide a composer for the Carnaval de Venise burlesque. In 1868, the Popular Garden concert series featured a piece of the same title by Ernst, so that is what is listed here.

Review: New York Post, 14 September 1867.

“As we are getting ready for a fall musical season of unusual brilliancy it is somewhat sad to think that the charming out-of-door concerts given by Mr. Theodore Thomas at Terrace Garden will come to a close tomorrow night. We are very much indebted to this able and enterprising conductor for having, during the past two summers, so far naturalized one of the most pleasant features of German life. The recollection of the summer evenings spent in this ‘garden of delights,’ where the charm of exquisite music has spiritualized the enjoyment of social pleasures, will linger long and pleasantly. The weather has been most unpropitious to Mr. Thomas’s enterprise, but has not interfered in the least with his faithful adherence to the liberal programme he had laid down for his entertainments. To him and his courteous manager, Mr. Goesche, we tender our thanks, and trust that next summer the skies will not be so chronically lachrymose.”
