Grafulla’s band to play “several brilliant modern selections.”
“A good concert was given at the Academy of Music last night by the Seventh Regiment Band and a number of resident artists. The attendance was discouragingly small, though the entertainment was really attractive.”
A grand piano from the New York Piano Factory was played at this concert for the first time.
“A popular concert was given at the Academy of Music on Christmas night with much effect. The artists were Mme. Brinkerhoff, Mrs. J.H. Barclay, Signor Fosati[sic], Mr. J.N. Pattison, and the others were the members of Grafulla's Seventh Regiment Band. The ladies were received with great favor—Mrs. Brinkerhoff being encored in her ballad and loudly applauded in the duet with Signor Fosati[sic].
