Austrian soprano and opera singer. In 1807 Grünbaum took a position as a singer at the Prague Theater, and in 1815 Carl Maria von Weber composed a special scene and aria for her performance of the title role of Étienne Méhul's Héléna. In 1816 she moved back to Vienna, and in 1819 at the Kärntnertor Theater, she sang Desdemona in the Viennese debut performance of Gioachino Rossini's Otello. From 1818-1828, she sang at the Court Opera in Vienna. In 1823 she created the role of Eglantine in Weber's Euryanthe. She also sang guest roles in Munich (1827) and in Berlin (1828–1830).

She married tenor Johann Christoff Grünbaum (1785–1870) in 1813 and had one daughter Caroline Grünbaum (1814-1868). After retiring from her concert career for health reasons, Grünbaum opened a music school in Berlin. She died on 30 January 1876 in Berlin.

August wurde sie Vormittag halb 12 Uhr von einer Tochter entbunden, und diese in der Sankt- Johannis-Kirche in der Jägerzeile als Theresia getauft durch Pater Collumpazzi."
