Flutist, Educator, Entrepreneur
 Technically robust and musically forceful 
-- New York Times


Her performances of American flute concerti have won critical acclaim. When she performed her commissioned concerto Trail of Tears by Michael Daugherty with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra in January 2020, one reviewer wrote, "Porter's appearance with a modern piece in which such embedding of the guest artist with the vehicle shone so brightly seems to me a high point of the ISO's recent history."
She recorded and performed the work with the Albany (NY) symphony in May 2015, prompting the Albany Times Union to write: "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 a reviewer for annarbor.com noted that "Amy Porter deeply imbues with a sense of narrative and of speech and, yes, drama."

The Lukas Foss Legacy - September 30, 2022
Kleinhans Music Hall
Buffalo, N.Y.
10:30 AM
$20-90
In commemoration of his 100th birthday, we celebrate the life and works of Lukas Foss, music director of the BPO from 1963 to 1970, and a transformative force in the Buffalo arts scene. His early tonal works, like Ode for Orchestra, Symphony No. 1, and Three American Pieces, were sublime, while his later works, such as Renaissance Concerto, which will feature flutist Amy Porter, explored an exciting avant-garde sound for which he became well-known. Rounding out the program is a nod to Foss’ great friend, Leonard Bernstein, with his Three Dances from On the Town, telling the tale of a trio of sailors and their amorous adventures while on leave in New York City.
