But I Was A Girl: The Story of Freida Belinfante

Told with a remarkable absence of sentimentality this is the story of Frieda Belifante (1905-1995) the first female conductor to have her own orchestra: first in WWII Amsterdam and later in Orange County, California. Wearing men’s tweed suits, a member of the Resistance, Jewish, gay and playing sublime music, this amazing woman’s story unfolds across time and two continents.
