During World War II, she entertained in military hospitals, which eventually led to her professional debut in New York City in 1953. She brought her zither sounds to smart supper clubs in New York, and was a standard attraction at Manhattan’s Hampshire House for five years. She toured extensively in the United States and Canada and recorded exclusively for Capitol Records, eighteen albums in all. Upon retirement in May 1975, she moved from Connecticut to Sun City, remaining there until her death on March 6, 2005.
Her colorful zither sounds were created on a custom-made Meinel instrument, which is the zither counterpart to a Stradivarius. She was the only female professional zither player in North America.
