In a time when women were told they couldn't become conductors, Antonia Brico didn’t listen to discouraging words. Those words went in one ear and out the other.
The second title in Penny Candy’s Amazing Women Series of nonfiction picture books, In One Ear and Out the Other: The Amazingly Musical Life of Antonia Brico tells the story of one woman’s fight to gain recognition as a conductor in an era when men dominated classical music. The first woman to guest-conduct the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Antonia Brico never secured a permanent conducting job with a major symphony—but her contributions paved the way for the many women conductors to follow. A true visionary in the long fight for equal opportunities for women.
Dr. Antonia Brico was my teacher from the time I was 10 years old she was a dynamic and amazing woman. Now we have a beautiful book about her life where little children can learn what can happen when you pursue your dreams and do what’s in your deepest heart. Never give up on your dreams, Antonia says, never let anybody tell you that you can’t do something you want to do! And always believe that miracles can happen! What a beautiful book is In One Ear and Out the Other: Antonia Brico and Her Amazingly Musical Life!
Pre-release celebration at Denver Philharmonic Orchestra’s opening concert of the 2020-21 season, including a reading by the author, activities for kids, and a celebration of Dr. Brico’s impact on the Denver classical music scene.
