“This lady, and ex-member of the Stadt Theatre Operatic Company, had a slimly attended benefit last evening. She was assisted vocally by Miss Rosenberg, Miss Durgem, Messrs. Candidus and Remmertz, and a chorus from the Teutonia Männerchor, and instrumentally by Mr. Gerbel, a zither player. Miss Krause has a good, well cultivated soprano voice, better adapted, however, to the opera than to concert. The tone is very full and the quality dramatic. The operatic selections last night were unsuitable for a concert hall with a mere piano accompaniment. The beneficiare deserved a more liberal acknowledgment of her undoubted ability than her compatriots vouchsafed her. Benefit concerts, however, are sorry affairs nowadays.”
