“The attendance at the Central Park Garden does not diminish, although the nights are getting cool. There is no reason why it should. The large concert hall is perfectly comfortable, and will be made so all the rest of the season. When the weather requires, heating apparatus will be put in and the garden in the rear will be roofed over. Then the Garden Concerts are the only concerts we have, and will continue to be the best, even after the concert season begins. Last night was one of the ‘grand, extra gala nights,’ and the entertainment justified the appellation. It was worth a visit to the garden to hear the grand fantasia from Meyerbeer’s ‘Robert’ so superbly rendered as it was by the two orchestras, to say nothing of the other pieces, including the grand march and chorus from ‘Tannhauser,’ also performed by this unusual force of excellent musicians. Another grand extra performance will be given to-morrow evening.”
