Exposition Hall (December 27, 1872)
The concert began at 8 pm. A Weber piano was used.
The Strakosch Concert.
The farewell Strakosch concert last night at Exposition Hall was not attended by an audience so large as last week, owing to the uncomfortably cold weather. Though the hall was cold, the audience was warm and enthusiastic in their admiration of the singing of Patti, Cary and Mario, and the piano playing of Mlle. Carreno.
The Strakosch concerts have been a remarkable success here, and the musical souls of our people were satisfied for the time by attending them. The people of Mobile will have the pleasure of listening to a Patti Mario concert to-night.
We infer from the subjoined paragraph from the Houston Union that no concert was given in that city:
Houston saves about $3000, minus the company's expenses here, which could not have been over $300, by the failure of the Strakosch troupe to warble for us. We intended to give the troupe a $3000 house, or at least one that would not have fallen below $2700. But we have heard no grumbling about the omission of the company to keep their appointment.
