Valaida Snow: Queen of the Trumpet
22 min 

The beautiful Ms. Snow was a singer, dancer, composer, and multi-instrument musician, hailed by Louis Armstrong as the "second best" trumpeter in the world. She was an international sensation whose rise to stardom was halted in 1940. Snow was performing in Copenhagen when Nazi troops invaded; she was arrested and placed in a German prisoner-of-war camp. From Shanghai to Sweden, from being feted by royalty to being brutalized as a prisoner of war, Snow's story is fascinating, tragic and triumphant.
