Announcement: New York Herald, 16 February 1865, 4.
Says the series will begin on February 26th.  “The class of music selected for these concerts is of the highest standard, representing the works of the most eminent Italian and German composers.  We have before expressed our appreciation of the admirable manner in which they are rendered under the supervision of Mr. Gonzalez.”

Announcement: New York Herald, 19 February 1865.
“The capacity of Clinton Hall was found inadequate to the success which has attended the sacred concerts of Mr. Gonzalez hitherto given there.  This evening, therefore, the first of a new series will commence at Irving Hall, and will be continued on each Sunday evening at the same place.”
