At the conclusion of announcement for the series' Mozart Night on 08/29/66. "The usual classical features of the Tuesday and Friday nights' programmes of these concerts continue to draw the ever-increasing throng of dilletanti."

     “Thomas’ Garden Concerts. Those popular entertainments increase in popularity as the season advances. For the past week the attendance has been overwhelming, numbers being turned away from the entrance for want of room inside. The Mozart night on Wednesday and the classical programme on Tuesday and Friday nights attracted a larger attendance than usual. The execution of each programme was fully equal to the standard from which we can judge Mr. Thomas’ orchestra.”
