Thu August 31st
Rupert Boyd and Laura Metcalf – Boyd Meets Girl
On August 31st and September 1st 2017, Walsh Street will serve as the backdrop for a concert to be given by one of Boyd’s grandchildren, classical guitarist Rupert Boyd and his wife, Laura Metcalf.
Boyd Meets Girl perform arrangements and original compositions from the Baroque through modern day, and have given performances throughout Australia and the United States.
Laura Metcalf, noted for her “gorgeous cello legatos” (Washington Post) and her “sensitive, melodic touch” (BlogCritics Magazine), is a member of the highly acclaimed string quintet Sybarite5, and cello-percussion quartet Break of Reality.
Music was an important part of the lives of Robin and Patricia Boyd. Music was often played at Walsh Street and the Boyd Family were regular attendees at concerts and musical performances.
These performances will be open to Friends of the foundation first and then public tickets will be launched. Tickets will be on sale in July.
