“Gottschalk will give a grand concert at Irving Hall this evening, assisted by Mlle. Cordier and Messrs. Warren, Patti, Sanderson and Behrens, for the benefit of the Rose Hill Ladies’ Soldiers’ Relief Association. The object is praiseworthy and the entertainment afforded is attractive.”

“The Gottschalk concert, for the benefit of the Soldiers’ Relief Association, took place last evening at Irving Hall, and was an immense success. The house was crowded and overflowing. We lack space to notice at length the fine performance, and can but add that all the artists concerned were very successful in their efforts and were much applauded. Mrs. Kempton, Gottschalk, Sanderson, S. C. Campbell, Geo. Warren, S. Behrens and Carlo Patti lent their services to render this one of the most brilliant concerts of the season.”

Review: Dwight's Journal of Music, 14 November 1863, 136.

“There seems to be a perfect surfeit of concerts, and a detailed review of them is utterly impossible. The Rose Hill Ladies’ Soldiers’ Relief Association, had a grand concert in aid of their funds, at Irving Hall last evening. Mlle. Cordier, who has accepted an engagement from Max Strakosch, sang the Shadow aria from ‘Dinorah’ and Gottschalk, Sanderson, Warren, Campbell and Carlo Patti assisted on the occasion.”
