Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 09 July 1869, 8.

“The New-York German Liederkranz met last night in their club rooms at No. 31 East Fourth-st., for the purpose of having their last rehearsal before going to the great Saengerfest at Baltimore. The Liederkranz is the largest Society connected with the New-York Saengerbund. They number 80 well trained male singers. The Club numbers somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,100 members. At the present time the club-rooms of the Society are undergoing extensive repairs and enlargement. They have purchased the building adjoining on the east, and design extending their Concert-Hall the width of the two houses. This hall, when completed, will be 100 feet long and 50 feet wide, and will be ready for use by the 1st of September. The dining and refreshment room will occupy the basement. The musical department of the Liederkranz is under the directorship of Prof A. Paur, who has been training the singers for some time for the great Saengerfest at Baltimore next week. They leave for Baltimore on Saturday, and while there will be entertained at the Entaw House. The rehearsal last night was very fine, indeed, and concluded with their prize song, ‘Wiekamdie-Liebe [sic],’ composed by Freye [sic]. The translation is, ‘How came Love.’ Fred. Steins sings the solo parts.”
