SEMFA Spring Guest Artist
Amy Porter in Recital with David Gilliland and David Buck masterclass
On Saturday, March 7 Amy Porter, Professor of Flute, University of Michigan School of Music, performed in recital with David Gilliland, Piano for SEMFA’s Spring Artist Event! The program featured the Sonata for flute and piano by Francis Poulenc. Sonatine for Flute and Piano by Henri Dutilleux, Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune by Claude Debussy/arr. G. Samazeuilh, and Duo for flute and piano by Aaron Copland. It was a spectacular day for SEMFA. Our membership and guests enjoyed this brilliant program performed as only Amy Porter, whom the New York Times has praised as: “technically robust and musically forceful”, the American Record Guide has recommended: “if you have not heard her playing, you should” and the Houston Chronicle has lauded: “she has succeeded in avoiding all the overdone playing styles of the most famous flutsts today”. Brava, Ms. Porter!
