German Musical Society

 

1860

02 23 A musical society has recently been formed in this city by Germans, which meets once a week to afford its members an opportunity to cultivate the most delightful and agreeable of all the arts. Last Monday evening a concert was given by the society in this city, which was highly creditable to those who took part in the exercises. The attendance was large and everybody went away well pleased and gratified with the entertainment and will be glad to have another chance to listen to as fine singing as was heard on that occasion.
