It is unclear to where or for how long this company traveled, but it cannot have been too far, as Levy played a summer-long engagement with the Theodore Thomas Orchestra at the Central Park Garden in 1869.

Article: New-York Times, 29 March 1869, 5.

“Mr. Levy has organized a company which will start on a concert tour to-day. The gentleman is a marvelous performer on the cornet-à-piston. He has created a sensation wherever he has played, and is unquestionably one of the greatest attractions now before the public. He has secured the prima donna in the person of Miss Dora Harris—the sister of little Laura Harris—and has other artists of merit.”
