Marshall Figure CAMERON G. MARSHALL Assisted by MASTER VIRRO B. ANDERSON The Phenomenal Boy Pianist BARITONE SOLOIST HARP PIANO CRAYON CLAY MODELING A RTISTS and Musicians are born not made.

D. —The baritone solos of Mr. Marshall were the best ever rendered in the town, and his songs illustrated with crayon were the newest and most unique things ever presented. Times-Herald, Dallas, Texas. —The program as a whole was delightful, but the greatest enthusiasm was aroused by the marvelous playing of the boy pianist, Virro Anderson, a lad of only fifteen years. His execution is faultless and his shading and conception really matured. Dallas Morning News, Dallas, Texas. —The rule prohibiting encores was entirely disregarded when Master Virro Anderson, aged only eleven years, played Chopin's C sharp minor waltz. The enthusiasm he created necessitated his appearing again and again. Daily News, Dallas, Texas. —Set over against the fine playing of maturer students of Landon Conservatory was the masterful performance of Virro Anderson, a boy of twelve years. His execution is wonderful not because he is young; it is wonderful and the performer happens to be young. Beau Monde, Dallas, Texas. —All the numbers on the program were liberally applauded, but the fourth number, played by the boy pianist, Virro Anderson, was the most enthusiastically received. When the little man seated himself at the piano the audience expected to hear a child perform. They were surprised to hear an artist.

The attraction was Mr. Cameron Marshall and his pianist, Master Virro Anderson, and everyone present speak of it as a strictly high class entertainment. Mr. Marshall certainly is an artist with the crayon, and showed what a piece of crayon could do in the hands of an artist. His solo numbers were as good as can be heard on any stage. Mr. Marshall appeared at the Christian Church Friday night, and gave a very creditable entertainment; for one and one-half hours the audience was highly entertained with instrumental or vocal music, crayon sketches or repertoire; not one dull moment from start to finish. Mr. Marshall is an artist of high order as well as a master of song. If he should come this way again, Burlington would give him a hearty welcome. (Signed) Geo. E. Tifft, Pastor M. E.
