Conductor and Producer Amy Andersson is known most recently as founder of Orchestra Moderne NYC, a game-changing orchestra in New York City that made their triumphant debut at Carnegie Hall in 2017, and Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in 2019. 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.” 


Ms. Andersson has toured to over twenty-two countries as a conductor of operatic, symphonic, Broadway musical, and video game repertoire. Known for her commitment to performing the works of living composers, she has led symphony concerts in the works of composers Peter Boyer, Lolita Rtimanis, Penka Kouneva, Jessica Curry, Greg Edmonson, Grant Kirkhope, Sharon Farber, Anne-Kathrin Dern, Steve Jablonsky, Elitsa Aexandrova, Jack Wall, George Strezov, Miriam Cutler, Nathalie Bonin, Chance Thomas, Yoko Shimomura, Borislav Slavov, Greg Pliska, Starr Parodi, Mandy Hoffman, Gary Schyman, Jeremy Soule, Nobou Uematsu, Bear McCreary, Kol Otani, Austin Wintory, and Martin O’Donnell, among others.


She has made appearances with the St. Louis Symphony, Houston  Symphony, Seattle Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Oregon Symphony,  Colorado Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, Honolulu Symphony, Royal  Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Stockholm Concert Orchestra, Spanish  Philharmonic, National Orchestra of Mexico, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony  (Toronto), Spanish National Youth Orchestra (JONDE), Florida Orchestra,  Dallas Pops Orchestra, Classic FM Radio Orchestra of Bulgaria, Plastic  Acid Orchestra (Vancouver), Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra,  Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, Bundes Jugend Orchestra, Niederrheinische  Symphoniker, LOH Orchestra Sonderhausen, Berliner Symphoniker, Giessen  Philharmonic, Aalborg Symphony Orchestra, Macedonian Philharmonic,  Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland, Les Musicales du Trophee, with the  Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Colorado Music Festival Orchestra, Westchester  Chamber Orchestra, as well as free-lance orchestras in Switzerland,  Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, and Ireland.


Ms. Andersson is producer and creator of Women Warriors: The Voices of Change,  a live-to-picture symphony production featuring the music of eight  celebrated female composers synced to a silent 70 minute documentary  film. This original production premiered at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln  Center on September 20th, 2019.


This revolutionary concert creation honours the strength and heroism  of global activists fighting for social justice, human and civil rights,  environmental causes, minority rights, gender equality and for the  right of every girl to an education. Conducted by Ms. Andersson and  premiered by Orchestra Moderne NYC, this production features the  orchestral scores of award-winning composers Nathalie Bonin, Miriam  Cutler, Anne-Kathrin Dern, Isolde Fair, Sharon Farber, Mandy Hoffman,  Penka Kouneva, Starr Parodi and Lolita Ritmanis. Described as  “THRILLING, “GROUNDBREAKING” “POWERFUL” and a “TRIUMPH OF BIBLICAL  PROPORTIONS!,” this sold-out concert moved an audience to tears and  standing ovations.


In February 2020, Ms. Andersson, composer Lolita Ritmanis and sound  engineer Mark Mattson traveled to Riga, Latvia in 2020 to record the Women Warriors soundtrack album with the 75 piece Riga Studio Orchestra and The Riga  Cathedral Girls’ Choir TIARA. The album was released on February 4th,  2021 in commemoration of Rosa Park’s birthday. Ms. Andersson is  executive album producer and Lolita Ritmanis and Mark Mattson are album  producers. It is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Pandora,  YouTube and other platforms.


Ms. Andersson resided and worked professionally in Germany for 15  years, became an EU citizen and regularly led opera productions at the  Deutsche Oper am Rhein, National Theater of Mannheim, Stadttheatre  Aachen and Schlosstheater Schwetzinger.


Known for her commitment to nurturing the careers of young opera  singers, she was music director for three summer festival seasons at the  Junge Oper Schloss Weikersheim in Germany, conducting new productions  of La Boheme, Carmen and La Traviata, and was music director of a new production of Cosi fan tutte at the Rheinsberg Chamber Opera, conducting ten performances with  attendance totaling over 40,000 people. She was also music director of  the Colorado Light Opera, conducting twenty-five performances total of Man of La Mancha and South Pacific with a cast of young singers.

Ms. Anderson is an inspiring conducting teacher. She has been adjunct  professor at the University Der Kunste Berlin and  Brooklyn College at  Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, where she taught orchestra  conducting to media and film scoring students. She has led masterclasses  for the Alliance for Women Film Composers and the Society of Lyricists  and Composers in both New York and Los Angeles.


In season 2015-2017 Ms. Andersson was music director of the world tour of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, and in 2014 toured with the video game show Replay: Symphony of Heroes.
