From a Willow Grove Park Concert Program, June 3rd, 1923:
"Patrick Conway and versatility seem to be synonymous...From the profundities and subtleties of a classic, from the fragile and delicately woven pattern of a ballad, from the bizarre brilliance of an Orientalism, one may hear him change to the vigorous and rhythmical shallowness of a popular song. And from each he manages to extract the exact meaning from its depths...His organization is as sensitive to his baton as a photographic plate to the light...One feels instinctively the assurance of a leader, knows instinctively what is coming will be good and as near perfect as human effort can make it."
"Captain Conway is now at the head of the Band Department at the Ithaca Conservatory of Music, in Ithaca, NY, and is proving a great success in his new work."
"Captain Conway's concerts are a constant source of delight to real music lovers who frequent Willow Grove Park."
