“Theo. Thomas’s Concerts.—This evening and Saturday are gala nights at the Central Park Gardens [sic]. There will be on these occasions a double orchestra—a fact that is apt to bring out also a double audience.”

“At the Central Park Garden to-night Mr. Thomas gives a gala concert with two orchestras, offering an unusually attractive programme, which includes the choice features of previous concerts. Next week there will be at this establishment two benefits—those of Mr. Levy, the cornet player, and Mr. Gosché, the popular business manager; and as both of these gentlemen have troops of friends, the Garden will scarce contain the crowds.”
