Program Details

An announcement of 07/26/69 in the New York Herald makes note of Thomas’s “two unrivalled orchestras.” It is unclear if this means that the Thomas Band also participated in this event. The citations note that Parlow’s Frühlingsmarsch and Strauss’s Die Sirenen, Eile mit Weile, and Disputationen are “new.”

"Messrs. Gosche and Thomas are the magnates that draw such large and delighted audiences nightly to the Central Park Garden. The one looks after the bodily comforts of their guests, while the other steeps their senses in a flood of harmony from his ‘two unrivalled orchestras.’”
