“Mme. Mina Geary gave her annual grand vocal and instrumental concert last evening at Irving Hall. The house was well filled with an appreciative audience. Many of the solos and ballads were loudly applauded. Mrs. Arnold made a brilliant effort upon the piano and showed rare powers of execution. Mr. Brookhouse Bowler was also one of the marked features of the evening, and in the air from ‘Cavatine’ received great applause. The flute solo by James McCarroll and Mr. Hall’s ‘Sulla papa [poppa] del mio brick’ were also among the charms of the musical feast.”
