The original program contains two arias performed by Miss Anna Drasdil:
Handel "Dove sei" (Rodelinda) following the Brahms, and Rubinstein "Hecuba"
Op. 92 which followed the Beethoven. According to the Theodore Thomas
scrapbooks at the Newberry Library, Chicago, Miss Drasdil was ill and did
not perform. The Mendelssohn was added at the last minute. We are unsure as
to the exact order of the pieces.
