Wendy was born to sing - and like a bird, she came by it naturally. Surrounded by three musical older sisters it's no wonder that she began singing melodies at the age of seventeen months. By age three, she landed her first stage role as Gretl Von Trapp in a production of The Sound of Music.
Wendy's early melodies expanded to harmonies and during the next twenty years she performed with her sisters. Their collective blend and tight harmonies impressed audiences everywhere they appeared. Their first concert tour to Mexico was such a success that they were invited back to Puerto Vallarta and a second concert was added in Guadalajara. Other career highlights included touring and recording with a big band and legendary 40's vocal artists Johnny Desmond (Gene Krupa, Glenn Miller), Tex Beneke (Glenn Miller) and Helen O’Connell (Jimmy Dorsey). They also had the opportunity to work with the distinguished Brazilian pianist/composer Manfredo Fest (Sergio Mendes, Antonio Carlos Jobim).
