“Musical Intelligence. The Saengerbund, a well known musical union, which at present is composed of the societies Allemania, Germania, Schillerbund, Loreley, Social Liedertafel and Williamsburg Saengerbund, held a musical celebration on Sunday night at the Germania Assembly Rooms, composed of a concert and ball, which was a well patronized affair. The concert room, which was tastefully decorated, was fully occupied by the members and friends of the Saengerbund. Prominent among the decorations was the splendid banner of the union. The concert commenced shortly after eight o’clock by an instrumental performance by Messrs. Noll, Besig, Bergner, Rheder, Boehm, Schmitz, and Kuhlman, who performed a septet of Beethoven. This medley of musical compositions was rendered in an efficient manner; but an accident occurred during the performance, a portion of the stage broke down, which caused some delay. Several choruses were rendered by the most prominent singers of the Saengerbund, among others [illegible]. The ball was commenced at 12 o’clock.”
