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.

A NEW UPCOMING American Concerto - Amy Porter shines with another American premiere performance in January 2016 in Ann Arbor, MI of Elegy, Soliloquy and Finale for flute and strings by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.

Daugherty insists on every flute technique available, a challenge to which this flautist responds with fluency and feeling. That said, she – and the piece – wear their virtuosity quite lightly, so the deeply expressive nature of this music is never compromised. As for the orchestral writing, it’s both eloquent and forceful, and that creates a compelling soundscape.
