Mistakenly says the concert was “last night,” which would have been 03/01/1863. All other indications are that it was held on February 28, 1863. “The grand concert given by Carlotta Patti at Irving Hall last evening passed off with great eclat.”

Brief mention. A “very successful concert. . . . The entertainment [was] admirable.”

“The concert of Miss Patti, at Irving Hall, on Saturday, was splendidly attended. The seats were all filled, and numbers stood besides and beside. Miss Patti was in full voluble soprano trim, and dashed off fiorituri as naturally as the rose sheds a perfume, or falling waters spray. She was vastly applauded in several brilliant arias. Her assistants were Mr. Mills and Mr. Castle, the well-known pianist and the tenor. It is understood that Miss Patti will give two more concerts before sailing to Europe. She proceeds then directly to England under an engagement with Mr. Harrison, who has a splendid opera-house, using Signor Costa’s orchestra of ninety chosen instruments.”
