She also performed concert solos in the Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New Haven and Minneapolis symphonies and had long-running engagements at the Cotillion Room at New York's Hotel Pierre and La Maisonette at the St. Regis.
She also appeared recently on the small screen as Helen Barone in "The Sopranos."
Marand is survived by her husband Irving Salem; brother Robert; sister-in-law Joan; nephew Rob and nieces Missy, Kimberly and Cristin.
