In 2004 she was the recipient of a Crumb Commission from the OBFCS for a new work that celebrated the 75th birthday of renowned composer, George Crumb. As a composition fellow, Guzzo studied with master composer Chen Yi at the Ernest Bloch Festival of Music in 2003, and her music has been played by the San Francisco Bay Area modern music group, the Empyrean Ensemble; the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra; Third Angle in Portland, Oregon, and a number of other ensembles.
Research interests include the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Shulamit Ran, the cartoon music of Carl W. Stalling, and silent movie music. Guzzo currently serves as assistant professor of theory and composition at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
