New York Symphony Orchestra Performance

Fri., Oct. 5, 1906

The New York Symphony, a fifty piece orchestra under the direction of Walter Damrosch, played at the Carlisle opera house. Walter Dramrosch was famous for his opera, “The Scarlet Letter” based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book of the same name. A large number of Carlisle town members and students attended the event and “[felt] highly pleased that they were privileged to hear this great orchestra under the direction of the most eminent composer and conductor.”
