Program Details

The citations bill this event as the "Eleventh Grand [Sacred] Sunday Concert," which was a subset of the Popular Garden Concert series. (The New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold uses "sacred;" the English papers do not. See Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 6th on 06/16/67 and Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 12th on 06/23/67 for instances of "sacred" in both German and English papers.) 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, August 24th.
