Amy Porter is performing American flute concerti to critical acclaim. When she performed and recorded her commissioned concerto “Trail of Tears” by Michael Daugherty with the Albany (NY) Symphony in May 2015, The Albany Times Union wrote: "The focus remained on Porter’s beautiful tone color and Daugherty’s imaginative deployment of the orchestra." American Record Guide has lauded her playing for having "an innocent American lyricism..." and reviewers for annarbor.com write about her live performances, “Amy Porter deeply imbues her performance with a sense of narrative and of speech and, yes, drama.” She next performs Trail of Tears with with the Billings (MT) Symphony in September 2015.

Amy Porter was the marvelous flute soloist in "Trail of Tears," another colorful and evocative concerto from Michael Daugherty, the ASO's composer in residence. His title refers to the forced displacement of Cherokee families by the U.S. Army in 1838. Sadness and anger could be read into the first two movements, which included some breathy sounds and sagging pitches in the flute. But tragedy was never really at the forefront. The focus remained on Porter's beautiful tone color and Daugherty's imaginative deployment of the orchestra, with a generous use of rattling and shaking percussion instruments.
