Barbara began a stage career at age 15 with Little Theatre Productions.  A demanding performance schedule sometimes required appearances in three states a day. At 19, Barbara enrolled in formal studies of music, theater, and dance at Indiana University. Although she had been steeped in classical music forms from childhood, jazz and blues fanned her inner fire as an entertainer coming of age. When an offer came to perform in Las Vegas, she was "all in." She relocated to Nevada and, over the next 14 years, captivated audiences with inspired interpretations of jazz standards, show tunes, and popular songs across genres. Barbara became known not only for her pure voice and exceptional, five-octave range but for her ability to connect with audiences emotionally and draw them into the music. A reputation for professionalism found her sharing the spotlight with such talents as Frank Sinatra Jr. and Billy Preston. As returned to the Midwest and, in collaboration with other jazz musicians, continued to perform in clubs and private venues. When the USO came calling, Barbara answered and joined the show, traveling the globe for three years as a featured entertainer, lifting the spirits of our men and women in uniform. Back at home, Barbara formed "Jazzin," her own ensemble, and her duo, Side by Side, with pianist, singer, and composer, John Michael O'Leary, is a perfect example of bringing jazz and timeless classics with a flair for love & laughter to audiences of all ages.
