Cook, Sebastian

A PHENOMENON.—The New York Tribune says: “A young American lad, nine years old, is about to make his appearance in public as a performer on the violin.  He is already an accomplished artist, and his execution surpasses in completeness, power and expression, everything we have before deemed credible of a child. The name of the prodigy is Sebastian Cook—and when he appears in the music world we will be literally astounded.”
