Iconic International folk singer, Judy Collins, and Jill Godmilow, American film maker of the 1974 Academy Award nominated documentary film, Antonia: A Portrait Of The Woman, have this to say about IN ONE EAR & OUT THE OTHER: ANTONIA BRICO & HER AMAZINGLY MUSICAL LIFE :
“Dr. 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 that you want to do! And always believe that miracles can happen!
What a beautiful book is IN ONE EAR & OUT THE OTHER: ANTONIA BRICO & HER AMAZINGLY MUSICAL LIFE ! “
“Now forty-four years after Judy Collins and I made a film about the extraordinary symphony conductor, Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct major symphonies in Berlin, London, Los Angeles, New York, I have just read, with great delight, a richly nuanced book for children, IN ONE EAR & OUT THE OTHER, about dear Antonia and her determination to become the orchestra conductor she wanted to be. For young girls especially, this quietly vigorous book will inspire courage and determination for them to achieve their dreams.”
