The musical community of Indian apolis for sonic months past have been enjoying a somewhat- novel bill delightful scries of musical soiioes These limiionls h.ivo been in- augurntcd by ATessrs A. G. Co. Some iimc ago they conceiv- ed the idea of inviting their fricndh to their rooms on Snfurdiv after- noons to he culcrtnincd by profes- sional musicians and others of the city skilled in music. So attractive have their cntc.-tain- incnts become that looms have become too small to ac- commodate all who dcsiie (o attend. Hence1, one of their hi-t, enlerlnin- monU was held inilasonie TI.ill, one of the largest halls in the cily. The business of this house 1ms in- creased so rapidly that wo think them entitled ton place nmong our reviews. "We will therefore give a brief outline of their business. The Jirst Pianos sold in Indianap- olis were manufactured aL Boston by T. Gilbert, and ofl'eicd iu 1SU by Tn '18i5 ?rr." Bccchcr was called away from tlie city to take charge of a church, and turned over the agency and stock ot Pianos to 3Ir. A. G. Whlnid. Sub- sequently sevcinl changes took place iu the lirm. On March 10th, A. B. WSlhudandC. P. Wilson, iu connection with A. G Willard, formed the present linn of A. O. "Willard Co.. Indiana Music Store, Xos. -1 5 JJalcs house Block. Since the establishment of the new firm, A. G. "WHlard Co., have largely increased their stock by tho formation of several new and important agen- cies, and made extensive improve- ments, adding greatly lo the decora- tion aud finish of their new stoic- room Mr. A. G. Willard has been con- nected with musical intetcsts of Iit- dinnipolis for the pabt twenty-five and during that time by his energy and well known propriety'of character, has won for his house Jirst class business connections abroad, and the entire confidence of custom- ers at home. The policy of the house has always been to secure none but the bost instruments manufactur- ed. A few months since, believing that their interests would be further- ed by doing so, the firm delci mined to make the Hallet, Davis Co., and the Weber pianos specialities of the house.
