“Messrs. Charles Fradel and F. Groux intend, on the 15th of the present month, to inaugurate an uptown conservatory of music. It is claimed, and with justice, that there is a very large population in Harlem, Morrisania and the vicinity, which cannot now procure a suitable musical education without a long journey down town. This difficulty will be removed when Messrs. Fradel & Groux’s project is carried into execution. Mr. Fradel, as our readers are aware, is one of the most pleasing composers in America, and a thorough musician in every possible way. Mr. Groux is also a professor of music of local repute. The establishment is to be on One-hundred-and-twenty-eighth-street, between Second and Third avenues, and will be called the Harlem Conservatory of Music. There will be a grand opening concert on the 13th, at which several of the best artists in America will assist.”
