“The Central Park Gardens were crowded again last night, and so popular are the concerts that the present quarters are hardly sufficient for the music-loving multitude. Mr. Thomas is extending his area and taking in a space at the south of the large hall. He will have it ready in a few days, and in the meantime the public will content itself with the very spacious quarters that have been furnished for it.
The music last night was excellent, and received much applause. Mr. Levy’s performance on the cornet-a-piston wrought the enthusiasm to a high pitch, and the applause terminated only when Mr. Levy responded to the call for an encore. If the garden concerts continue to increase in popularity, Mr. Thomas may be forced to annex a few acres of the park.”
