"A performance of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 is a testament to the technical prowess of an orchestra,’ Bozeman Symphony's Music Director Norman Huynh said. “However, it is also a spiritual and emotional journey that can transport both performers and audience members to a realm of profound beauty, introspection, and transcendence."
Porter has performed with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic; and with a number of renowned conductors, including Stéphane Denève, Gustavo Dudamel, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Nicholas McGegan, Ludovic Morlot, and Donald Runnicles.
