"Theodore Thomas's delightful out-of-doors concerts continue to attract large audiences to Terrace Garden. The programme of last evening was unusually good, including overtures by Mozart, Rossini and Suppe, and the familiar 'Wedding March,' a delicious 'Reverie' by Viexutemps, Schubert's 'Wanderer,' the amusing burlesque 'Carnival of Venice,' and sundry polkas and waltzes by Strauss. The overture to 'William Tell' was boisterously encored, but Mr. Thomas was deaf, as usual, to the entreaties of his audience. This evening the lovers of classical music will find their tastes consulted in the arrangement of the programme."

Vieuxtemps’, Strauss’ “Libelle”, and Suppe’s “Day in Vienna” were most pleasing to the audience. Schubert’s “Wanderer” enthused even more; people called for da capo. Letsch played perfectly except for the low volume. The accompaniment was stronger than the solo at times. (…)

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.
