Tells "the origin of the Jenny Lind concerts": "In 1920, the year of the 100th anniversary of Jenny Lind's birth, the St. Eric Society of New York. wanted to honor the memory of the great singer in some way. it was decided the celebration should take the form of a reproduction of the first Jenny Lind concert given in America which as you know was held in Castle Garden in 1850. The President and also members of the committee of the society approached Miss Hempel on the subject of appearing in the role of the beloved Jenny Lind. Miss Hempel, after considering the matter an entire summer, finally consented and spent many weeks reading and studying for the novel role. The concert eventually took place at Carnegie Hall October 6th, 1920. The success of the performance was unprecedented." With original envelope. N° de ref. de la librería 27464
