Announcement: New York Herald, 30 April 1864.
To-day, at one o’clock, Signor Mazzoleni’s grand concert takes place at Irving Hall.  This entertainment is given for a charitable purpose, and, that there may lack an inducement to make it a great success, the programme includes the names of our most popular operatic artists, who will be under the direction of Mr. Maretzek. . . . [It] will doubtless be one of the most brilliant concerts of the season.”

Review: New York Herald, 01 May 1864, 1.
“The matinee concert advertised to be given yesterday by Signor Mazolleni, for charitable purpose, did not come off.  The illness of Madame Brignoli-Ortolani was the cause.”

Review: New-York Times, 02 May 1864, 4.
“The concert announced by Signor Mazzoleni, for Saturday last, did not take place.  Somebody was sick; so the few people who had assembled were dismissed.”
