Review: New York Post, 30 December 1863, 2.

“The concert of the favorite Twenty-second Regiment drew an immense audience to the Academy of Music last evening. The entertainment, both instrumental and vocal, was very satisfactory, and elicited great applause. The military spirit seems to prevail everywhere, and most of all among our youth of both sexes.

            The well-known band of Herr Helmsmuller maintained his reputation last evening, and one of the most attractive pieces performed was ‘Just Once More,’ a new composition by its accomplished leader.

            The vocal part was well sustained by Mme. D’Angri and Mme. Van Zandt, the latter being the favorite on the occasion. Her ‘Last Rose of Summer,’ a volunteered addition to the selections of the programme, was heartily and deservedly applauded. The Twenty-second regiment must feel gratified at the high estimation to which it is held by our citizens, and which was so well verified by the large audience last evening.”

Short review.  Gives name as Mrs. Van Zant.  “It was finely attended, and the performances passed off to the satisfaction of all present.”

Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 30 December 1864.
“There was a splendid audience present, but not the applause due to such artists as Madame D’Angri and Mrs. Van Zandt, who sang brilliantly and artistically.  The band performed admirably, and received an encore.  Signor Centemeri sang with much force and unction in his solo.”
