The following, from a New York City paper of recent date, will be read with interest by Boli var people: "The concert given at the Waldorf-Astoria last evening was a delightful entertainment and Miss Wren Pearson, a violin pupil of Mr. Wickes, was enthusiastically received. She played two numbers, accompanied by Mme. Delhaze Wickes. She rendered the Adagio, by Vieuxtemps, with much feeling and in a smooth and graceful way, and the Scherzo, by Van Goens, she played with dash and fire. As Mies Pearson is a magnetic performer, she is capable ot holding an au dience. Another successful affair was the pupils' recital given at the Metropolitan College of Music. Miss Mary Ingram's "bird like" voice was a feature of interest. She has a mellow tone and sings with color and warmth and a freedom which is pleasing. Miss Wren Pearson gave two violin selections, air by Bach and a Hungarian dance by Brahms. She played these numbers in her usual richness of tone and was recalled three times."
