HUEBNER Baritone SUSIE FORD Pianist FOREWORD IN placing at the head of her own concert company the well known Violinist, DOROTHY WING, we feel that we are taking no chances against public favor, for in the half dozen seasons that Miss Wing has been before the American public, she has thoroughly established herself as a prime favorite with all who admire the best in violin music and the most charming and graceful manner in its production. Miss Wing can give only a limited season to the concert stage as she is under contract with a leading musical agency to devote a portion of her time to strictly Recital work before musical clubs. The Artists associated with Miss Wing in the company are all musicians of splendid attainments and together they present a program that for delightful effect and pleasing tonal qualities is seldom equaled in the entire concert field. —THE MANAGEMENT PUBLIC COMMENT Miss Dorothy Wing, one of the stars of the violin world, played in exquisite style.

DEA WESTBROOK Soprano A young singer, fresh from her studies with eminent teachers, Miss Westbrook will make a great name for herself, for she possesses a rich voice of highly dramatic quality and great range. With such a voice, coupled with her delightful personality and splendid physique, we consider Miss Westbrook a valuable acquisition to the concert ranks. Figure Figure DAN A. HUEBNER Baritone I heard Mr. Huebner sing and was very much pleased with his voice, his interpretation of the Prologue from I Pagliacci being remarkable. MRS. FRANK J. MACKEY London, Eng. Mr. Dan A. Huebner has been a student of singing under my direction during the past two years, and the work which he has accomplished is of an exceptionally high order of merit. His splendid baritone voice is rich and sympathetic in quality and is under excellent control, and fully equal to the demands of his large and varied repertoire. Endowed with musical feeling and artistic insight, he sings with understanding and effect the simple song and the selection from opera or oratorio. HERMAN L. WALKER Chicago January 14, 1907 Mr. Huebner in his singing combines to a most unusual extent beautiful tone quality, excellent interpretation, and charm of manner. His work in my choir has been more than satisfactory in every respect and as soloist in my January organ recital left nothing to be desired. A serious, conscientious and competent singer, Mr. Huebner has been a continued source of satisfaction and pleasure to me and to the members of St. Mark's Church during his connection with my choir. HUGO P. GOODWIN Organist and Choirmaster St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Chicago SUSIE FORD Pianist PUBLIC COMMENT Miss Susie Ford began the study of music at the age of five years. At nine she was placed under the instruction of Frederic Grant Gleason, director of the Chicago Conservatory. At this time Theodore Thomas heard her play some of her own compositions and expressed himself in the highest terms regarding her talent. In 1901 she was awarded the first prize for composition, for an operetta, The Witch of Thuringia, which showed dramatic and melodic instinct, and a good command of orchestral resource. Miss Ford has been for several years an instructor in the Conservatory. Since she was ten years of age she has been constantly before the public, and has taken rank with the most highly recognized artists in the piano world. Conservatory Announcement 1903. There is no doubt but that a striking success in the musical world awaits Miss Susie Ford of Chicago. Detroit Tribune.
