Amy Andersson is a GRAMMY®-winning conductor and producer who has toured to over twenty-two countries conducting operatic, symphonic, and video game repertoire. Appearances on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS Morning News, CBS Evening News and press coverage in the Wall Street Journal, Variety, Forbes, and Huffington Post led music critic Norman Lebrecht to call her “America’s most watched symphony orchestra conductor.”

Andersson is also writer and director of Women Warriors: The Voices of Change, a live-to-picture symphonic concert and feature documentary film that honors the strength and heroism of global activists fighting for social justice, human and civil rights, environmental causes, minority rights, gender equality and the right of every girl to an education. She is founder and conductor of Orchestra Moderne NYC, which premiered Women Warriors to rave reviews and a sold-out house at Lincoln Center in 2019. Winner of over twenty-four international film and music awards in 2021, including four Telly Awards, six W3 Awards, a Hollywood Music in Media Award and a 2022 GRAMMY® for the soundtrack in “Best Classical Compendium,” this film has screened in more than ten countries.

Andersson is a voting member of the Recording Academy, HMMA, World Soundtrack Academy and Society of Composers and Lyricists. She is also an advisory board member of the Alliance for Women Film Composers, faculty member at the Hollywood Music Workshop in Baden, Austria, adjunct faculty at USC Thornton School of Music and adjunct professor at the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema in Brooklyn, New York.
