Amy Guttman has been a proud parent and volunteer for the Stamford All-School Musical for the past seven years. Being introduced to Broadway at age six, she was instantly hooked and her love for music and theater was found. Performing on stage became second nature to Amy as the alto saxophone player in her high school’s world-renowned Jazz band playing throughout Europe, Disneyland, and at several Berklee College of Music competitions. Her most memorable moment on stage was singing with the band at her own wedding. As a former elementary school teacher, she brought music and movement into her classroom on a regular basis and has always supported the local performing arts community.
