Review: New York Herald, 04 February 1867, 5.

…The Liederkranz Society, our leading vocal organization, gave a grand musical soirée at their hall in Fourth street last evening, which was very largely attended. Miss Seelig, soprano; Mr. Groschel, tenor, Mr. Boeckelmann, pianist; and Mr. Dale, cornet, were the soloists.  The programme comprised selections from Hiller, Beethoven, Kucken, Haydn, and the Coronation march, with orchestra and chorus. The last is a soul-stirring piece, and received full justice at the hands of the society. William Steinway, Esq., has been elected president of the society, and Mr. A. Paur is still the musical director.”

Review: New-Yorker Musik-Zeitung, 09 February 1867, 425.

Includes program. (…) The amateur orchestra has fallen below its usual performance level. The new Steinway grand piano showed “extraordinary power and appealing quality”.
