At conclusion of review for previous Wednesday's concert. "The next popular concert takes place on Wednesday next, when the Cecilian choir will again assist."
"The next Wednesday Evening Popular Concert will take place on the 26th at Steinway Hall. The programme will be of a very miscellaneous character, comprising, among other attractions, several brilliant vocal solos by the celebrated boy-singer, Master Coker, who now sings with more brilliance than ever. Some members of the Cecilian Choir, led by Master Toedt, will sing some of the beautiful old English glees and madrigals which they render with such charming effect. These are by far the most interesting concerts of the season, excepting, of course, the Philharmonic and Symphony Concerts; and we hope to see the Hall as crowded on this occasion as it was last Wednesday evening, when the Cecilian Choir also assisted."
“With 100 men and children in the chorus.”
“A very large audience assembled at Steinway Hall on Wednesday evening, at the popular concert. The Cecilian Choir, with orchestra and organ, gave some pieces and madrigals, oratorio and operatic choruses with stirring effect, and Master Richard Coker excelled his previous efforts in the beautiful songs which fell to his part. The programme was the most attractive, varied and brilliant we have heard at a concert this season, and for a popular concert was an unexpected one.”
