Review: New York Herald, 13 November 1865.

“CONCERT AT ST. COLUMBA’S CHURCH. The concert given at this church last evening, under the direction of Mr. Gonzalez, was a great success, both musically and pecuniarily. The artists were in fine voice, and their efforts were fully appreciated by the very large audience. The proceeds are to be devoted to the perpetuation of the present very fine choir and organ service of the church.”
