Review: Musical Review and World, 05 December 1863, 294.

“Mr. Theodore Thomas’ last concert, at Irving Hall, was, as usual, accompanied by the most horrible weather.  The audience was consequently but poor.  The orchestral performances were very good.  Beethoven’s first Symphony was played.  Mrs. Motte was the soloist on this occasion, and gave, as usual, great satisfaction.  The concerts will go on, every Saturday afternoon, until spring, in spite of weather, and the non-appearance of the public.”
