“At the tenth popular concert of the Y. M. C. A., yesterday afternoon, Messrs. Muller, Hill and Bergner, with Miss Sterling, were the artists. Mr. Bergner played the adagio movement from the concerto which he is to execute at the next Philharmonic concert. Miss Sterling is always a favorite, while Mr. Hill is an acceptable tenor. Mr. Muller showed good taste in confining the organ to the classic school, which he is so well fitted to interpret, but we think that Schumann or Haydn would give more pleasure to and be better understood by the audience than Bach or Rinck. For the next concert Mrs. Howard Paul, Mr. Eben, the flutist, and Mr. Nilsen, a Norwegian candidate for the honors of the concert room, are announced. We may add that the audience yesterday afternoon was a large one, and also that Signor Centemeri, though advertised, did not appear.”

“There was a concert at the Y. M. C. A. Hall last Saturday afternoon, and, like most of the Saturday concerts at that place, it was well attended. Mr. Müller was the organist; Miss Sterling and Mr. W. J. Hill sang, and Mr. Bergner played one movement from the concerto for the violoncello, by Golterman, which he is to give at the next Philharmonic concert.”
