‘Boyd Meets Girl’ elevates music to new heights in a performance both classical and contemporary, set in the Gold Coast hinterland.
Classical guitarist Rupert Boyd and cellist Laura Metcalf will perform the first show of their Australian tour in our very own Springbrook National Park. Hosted by the Springbrook Gastronomic Society, this recital is sure to be a feast for mouths and ears alike.
A married couple living in New York, Rupert and Laura have toured ‘Boyd Meets Girl’ in several continents. The performance’s repertoire ranges from the music of great composers the likes of Bach and Fauré, to Beyonce and Michael Jackson numbers, plus many of their own arrangements.
“They play like one, with a harmony of purpose as sure as their intonation” describes Gramophone Magazine.
Praise for the two acclaimed musicians includes “Boyd’s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone… musically and technically flawless” (Soundboard, Guitar Foundation of America), while Laura is noted for her “gorgeous cello legatos” (Washington Post) and her “brilliant” playing (Gramophone Magazine).
In 2017, ’Boyd Meets Girl’ was released on CD to wide acclaim and the duo embarked on a world tour. For Rupert, who is Australian, feeling artistically inspired by Springbrook is somewhat of a family trait; his ancestor is Arthur Boyd, a leading Australian artist from the late 20th Century who is known to have painted in the area.
Let music, food and nature entwine in what promises to be an exquisite, intimate performance on Saturday 15 June, at Springbrook Community Hall. Tickets through eventfinda.
