Nashville Globe – January 18, 1907 (pg. 4)

Miss Hester O. Brown, the accomplished violinist of Cleveland, Ohio has returned to the city from a trip to several cities in Alabama. While away she visited the A. and M. College at Normal, Ala., of which the proficient Prof. Council is principal. She also gave recitals at Decatur and Huntsville.

After much persuasion, Miss Brown has consented to stop over here and favor the people of Nashville with two or three recitals. Her first appearance will be at the Spruce Street Baptist Church some time next week. It is a great treat to hear Miss Brown. Her selections are all classical and she renders them with grace and ease.
