“A crowded house greeted Miss Henrietta Beebe on the occasion of her complimentary concert at Steinway Hall last evening. The programme was a decidedly select one, and the admirable manner of its rendition was fully appreciated by those who had the pleasure of listening to it. The selections were from Weber, Rossini, Mozart, Verdi, Meyerbeer and other eminent composers. The beneficiare sang the aria ‘Batti, Batti’ from Don Giovanni, and also a new Valse di Bravura of Arditi’s composition, in each of which she received, as she well deserved, a unanimous request for repetition. Madame d’Angri added much to the success of the entertainment by her rendering of Iradier’s ‘La Pamplinera,’ a Spanish song of serio-comic character. In the quartette fom Rigoletto, and also in ‘L’usato Adir,’ [sic] trio in Semiramide, this accomplished artiste added another to the musical laurels that have been awarded her by the public. Mr. W. J. Hill, tenor, and Mr. H. W. Crane, basso, received much applause for their artistic renderings of ‘Love’s Request’ [sic, no italics] and ‘Del Profondo Dell Oblio’—the former by Reichardt and the latter by Campana. Taken altogether this concert was a rare musical treat, and the efforts of an excellent orchestra did much to make it a success.”

“Miss Henrietta Beebe was the recipient of a very acceptable complimentary concert, at Steinway Hall, on Thursday evening. The house was filled, and the programme was composed of pieces for Miss Beebe, Mme. D’Angri, Mr. H. W. Crane, Mr. W. J. Hill, and Theodore Thomas’ orchestra. Miss Beebe possesses an agreeable soprano voice, good in quality and quantity, which she uses discreetly. The lady sings, we believe, in one of our up-town churches.”
