Grover’s Sunday Concerts are concluded now. The ensemble he originally hired for opera performances will perform concerts and scenes from operas from now on. It consists of Mrs. Frederici and the male performers Himmer, Habelmann, Formes and Hermanns. Grover hired the pianist Wehli as an addition, who is still suffering from the perception he was the most significant pianist in the United States. The ensemble left New York last Monday.

Grover will continue his Sunday concerts at the Olympic Theatre despite the departure of his ensemble. The gifted young conductor Adolf Neuendorf is performing satisfactorily.
