Wendy Altmann, Paul Barrett, and Roseville Big Band vocalist Kirk Lindberg were three of the stars of the production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at Como Park pavilion in St. Paul.

Wendy sang the role of the narrator. Paul played one of Joseph's brothers and was the understudy for the role of the Pharoah. Kirk had the title role.

To correspond with the production of the musical, the trio performed a medley of songs from the musical with an augmented Roseville Big Band in a Central Park concert July 25, 1995. The medley included, among other songs, "Any Dream Will Do", "Close Every Door", the Pharoah's song, and "Go, Go, Go Joseph". The band borrowed the music from Max Metzger, musical director of the production, and added oboist Andie Gehrtz, flute and piccolo player Ann Gabrys, and clarinetist David Gates to the musical forces.

On the July 29, 2003, Roseville Big Band concert, Wendy was featured on "It's Been a Long, Long Time", "Lullaby of Broadway", and "Memory". She also joined in on the choruses of "Y.M.C.A."

Wendy was the vocalist with the Red Rock Swing Band, formed in 2002.

Wendy passed away March 21, 2021.
