Michael Daugherty’s 'Trail Of Tears Concerto'
Saturday’s American Music Festival Orchestra Concert is a “Migrations” program that focuses on the traditions surrounding American History and features Michael Daugherty’s Trail Of Tears Concerto with Amy Porter on flute.
Grammy award winning composer Michael Daugherty is one of the most commissioned, performed, and recorded composers on the American concert music scene today. His music is rich with cultural allusions and bears the stamp of classic modernism, with colliding tonalities and blocks of sound; at the same time, his melodies can be eloquent and stirring.
