The NY Allgemeine Sängerbund has hired a 28 member orchestra under the direction of Mr. Mensching for its vocal and instrumental concert on November 15th. The admission is $1 for one man and one woman.
The concert of the NY Allgemeine Sängerbund took place on Sunday at the Germania Assembly Rooms. Performed choral pieces were Krüger’s prize composition “Kriegertod”, Kücken’s “Auf dem Rhein”, and Stuntze’s well-known “Freiheitsmarsch”. The conductor’s F. Krüger directed the chorus well, and his composition was appealing.
The German Sängerbund in Dresden sent a letter to the New York Sängerbund which is printed here. It expresses deeply felt gratitude for the extraordinary hospitality shown to the German delegate from the old country, who came after having been invited by the central committee of the North-American Sängerbund. This delegate returned to Germany with treasured memories, which he shared in word and even print, published in a major German newspaper. The writer of the letter, H. Hartwig, vice president of the business department, praises the deep connection and faithfulness between the German singers of the old and new homeland. It was written on October 12th, 1868 and addressed to all German singers in America.
