Mrs. Cambern was still in high school when she joined the Philharmonic as second harp when the orchestra began in 1919. She was then the youngest musician and the only woman in the Philharmonic. Over the course of her career, she performed with such conductors as Leopold Stokowski and Bruno Walter, and played for George Gershwin, Mary Pickford, Roy Rogers and Walt Disney. During the 1930s and ’40s, she appeared on “Lux Radio Theater” with Cecil B. DeMille and on “Hit Parade” with Frank Sinatra.
