“A benefit sacred concert, was given in the Griffin Opera House last night by the Fifteenth Regimental band, and the house was filled to overflowing. Many were unable to gain admittance. Under the leadership of Bandmaster Hinchey, the band rendered selections, which were thoroughly enjoyed, as was also the number by the ladies quartette of St. Andrew’s Church.”
