Trumpet and jazz singer, multi-instrumentalist and arranger.

While in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen, she was captured by German forces and interned in the Vestre Fængsel prison. Eighteen months later, she was freed as an exchange prisoner, and allowed to return to New York; tragically, Snow never fully recovered from the ordeal.

She continued to work in spite of her personal suffering, but after playing the Palace Theater in New York on May 30, 1956, she died of a massive cerebral hemorrhage.
