Last updated: 01.08.22
p_nonette.jpgNonette was notable vaudeville violinist; known as the "Gypsy Violinist", born in Brooklyn, New York. She was also known as Nonette Lyle and Nonette Schoonmaker
Writing of her in 1907, the manager of the New York City Theater in Keith's Union Square, recorded:

Clever Violinist. This little girl has been with the Vassar Girls, and is now doing a speciality alone. She is one of the best Violinists I have ever heard. She is also a corking good singer. She plays the violin, also singing at the same time. She wears a gypsy costume which is very pretty. I moved her from Number two down to Number 6, and she held this spot very well, and went big. For $75.00 and two shows she is a "Find", and is sure to make good on any bill. 13 minutes in one.
