Review: New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold, 05 December 1864.

     “Last night the New Yorker Sing-Academy and the New Yorker Musik-Verein performed for a large audience. All of the various points of the program were, if one considers that the members of the chorus and orchestra were amateurs, performed successfully. The pieces were performed in such a sensitive and nuanced way that we can’t hold back with our praise for the New Yorker Musik Verein. The orchestra of the Academy also deserves recognition.  The soprano solo, sung by A. Linsenberg, was very well received.This lady possesses an extraordinarily pleasant voice and, in addition, knows how to utilize it.  The concert was followed by a ball that lasted into the morning hours.”
