Program Details

This is the first concert of this series to be held on a Saturday. (Early announcements for the Popular Garden concerts indicate that no Saturday concerts will be given as part of the series, but provide no reason why. [See citations of Thomas Popular Garden Concert: 1st on 06/10/67.] A possible explanation for the off Saturdays comes by way of a one-sentence announcement in the New York Herald on 06/17/67, p. 6: "The Arions have Terrace Garden on Saturday nights for their entertainments.")

The concerts here have been fairly well attended despite the inclement weather at times. Five to six novelties are in the program each night, which Thomas bought during his travels in France and Germany this summer.
