In an era when women 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: Antonia Brico and Her Amazingly Musical Life 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.

Diane Worthey grew up in Denver, Colorado. She played violin in the Brico Symphony (Now the Denver Philharmonic) as a teenager. Her debut book, In One Ear & Out the Other: Antonia Brico & Her Amazingly Musical Life is a tribute to Dr. Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct the New York Philharmonic. Diane lives in Pullman, WA. In addition to writing books for children, Diane teaches violin and viola to all ages of students through the University of Idaho Preparatory Program. Diane performs in the first violin section of the Washington-Idaho Symphony. Her message to young people is this: Don't listen to naysayers. Follow Antonia Brico's lead. Pursue your dreams with passion and perseverance.
