     In 1883 Franz Liszt sponsored a special concert of Van Der Stucken's works in the famous Ducal Theater of Weimar, Germany. Van Der Stucken returned to America in 1884 as director of the Arion Society Chorus of New York City and an instructor at the National Conservatory. He then became the founder and director of the Cincinnati Symphony and dean of the Cincinnati College of Music.
