Thomas Ryan in Cambridge, Massachusetts - in the middle of the 1800's
from Recollections of an old musician, page 96:
Parlor concerts were in vogue. In Cambridge, for instance, we had for fifteen consecutive seasons a set of eight parlor concerts, given in the houses of the professors or other friends of music. The programmes were of good music only. We also had for years sets of parlor concerts in places like Milton and New Bedford.
