The cellist Laura Metcalf performed at Penn State Behrend in 2019 as part of Sybarite5, a classical mashup that put a millennial twist on songs by David Bowie, Radiohead and Andy Akiho. She returns Feb. 8 as part of a duo – an on-stage partnership with her husband, the guitarist Rupert Boyd – but with the same rangy repertoire: On this tour, they’re performing songs by Bach and Beyonce.
The performance, the first of three spring concerts for Music at Noon: The Logan Series, is open to the public at no charge. The music will begin at noon in McGarvey Commons. Metcalf and Boyd tour as Boyd Meets Girl. “They play like one, with a harmony of purpose as sure as their intonation,” Gramophone wrote of their debut album, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard Traditional Classics chart. The duo has performed in India, Nepal and New Zealand, and in every state and territory in Boyd’s native Australia. The couple also serve as artistic directors for the Sunday morning concert series GatherNYC.
