“The nineteenth Sunday concert took place at Steinway Hall last night, and was attended by an immense audience. Haydn’s beautiful symphony in D, the Turkish March, and other popular works were played by the orchestra. Miss Kate McDonald sang Schubert’s Ave Maria in a style that called forth an enthusiastic encore, and confirmed our already expressed opinion of her merits. The other soloists were Mr. A. Sedgwick, concertina, and Mr. F. Letsch, trombone.”
