Conductor AMY ANDERSSON
has toured to over twenty-two countries conducting operatic, symphonic, Broadway musical, and video game repertoire and is known for her commitment to performing the works of living composers. Appearances on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS Morning News, CBS Evening News and press coverage in the Wall Street Journal have led music critic Norman Lebrecht to call her “America’s most watched Symphony Orchestra Conductor.”
She is founder and conductor of Orchestra Moderne NYC, which debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2017 and is writer and director of Women Warriors: The Voices of Change, a production which has won over 20 international film and music awards. Premiered at Lincoln Center in 2019 and scored by a team of renowned female composers, it is the first live-to-picture symphony production that features a documentary film.
Andersson has led conducting workshops in New York and Los Angeles for the Alliance for Women Film Composers and the Society of Lyricists and Composers and currently teaches conducting to media and film scoring students at Brooklyn College at the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema in New York.
