The American soprano, Barbara Troxell, was educated at Pennsylvania State. She studied voice with Elisabeth Schumann at the Curtis Institute from 1939 to 1942.

In 1943 Barbara Troxell appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Debussy's La Demoiselle Elue. She made her New York City debut in Mozart's C-Minor Mass at Carnegie Hall in 1944. That summer, she accompanied Sir Thomas Beecham to Mexico City for the Mozart Opera Festival, singing Donna Elvira and Pamina. She made her Town Hall recital debut in 1947. She sang one season (1950-1951) at the Metropolitan Opera in two roles: Ines in Verdi's Il Trovatore and an orphan in Rosenkavalier. Other solo recordings include Mozart's Exsultate Jubliate and Zaide on the WCFM label, song cycles by Benjamin Britten and Paul Hindemith, and opera arias on the Halo label.
