From the March 5, 1908 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

The Starr Concert.

The Wilbur Starr Concert Company appeared for the second time in our city last Thursday night. The concert was given in the Christian church, and that building was well filled with people who enjoy good music.

The program given was made up of vocal selections by Mr. Starr and Miss Irene Dodds, and violin selections by Miss Livingston, while Mrs. Starr presided at the piano and also played the cello in an instrumental trio. Mr. Starr gave some excellent impersonations.

The members of the company demonstrated that they are musicians of extraordinary ability, and that their training has been thorough.

The audience gave evidence of its pleasure by hearty applause, and the musicians were called upon to respond to many encores.
