Review: New-Yorker Musik-Zeitung, 03 August 1867, 824.

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

Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 03 August 1867.

“In want of other concerts, we will do well to remember the Terrace Garden, conducted by Mr. Thomas. The most interesting pieces performed on Tuesday night were the ‘Scherzo,’ from, Schubert’s symphony in C, and the variations on ‘Gott erhalte, Franz den Kaiser’ (the Austrian National hymn), by Haydn. They were both executed with charming precision and expression. There was, also, Liszt’s ‘March of Victory,’ which can never become tedious. Among the lighter pieces was the ‘Village Swallows,’ by Strauss. With full acknowledgment of the completeness of these concerts, we would suggest the introduction of a male vocal quartette, as a pleasant change. The public would be well satisfied with such an innovation.”
