Accompanied by pianist André Benoist, violin virtuoso and composer Fritz Kreisler gave a recital at Vassar. An anonymous review in The Vassar Miscellany declared the recital "one of those rare occasions when violiinist and audience are in perfect sympathy. Mr. Kreisler proved himself master of his full-toned violin in the almsot liquid clearness of the trills and runs, in the accuracy and sweetness of the high flute tones and in the sonorous chord work, and, what is even more difficult, in the perfect phrasing and repose of the simpler songs."

Fritz Kreisler appeared at Vassar again in 1915 as part of a subscription program for war relief and in 1920.
