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.

"There was wonder in both halves of the concert, beginning with Porter’s unique technique, raising the question, “How did she do that?”"
"Porter rocked back and forth as she played, jabbing the melody back and forth between the orchestra with such precise timing, it was as if she’d been performing in Billings for years. Porter and the orchestra drew a much-earned sustained standing ovation at the end of the piece."
