SAPAHO [SAPPHO] HOSE CO's CONCERT
(Jan. 6, 1877)
As was predicted, Sapaho Hose Co's concert and hop seemed to meet the hopes of all. Dickinson's Orchestra gave an entertainment of much merit from a well chosen programme. Among many notable point were the skillful handling of Trombone and Piccalo by Messrs. Breman and Stevenson. The imitation of the sound of a locomotive was well calculated to startle one on the track.
A well filled hall attested the general appreciation Binghamton's famous musicians. Not a small delegation was from Norwich, and a most agreeable representation too, which has Sappho's warmest thanks for coming, with hopes that nothing occurred to interfere with their enjoyment but that their pleasure in participating was equal to that of the company in receiving them.
As to pecuniary results they were quite satisfactory. Dancing was continued until about 2:30 a.m. On the whole this was considered at least equal to any entertainment given here of that character within the recollection of the participants and it is hoped that arrangements can be made to have others during the Terpsichorean season.
