Laura Metcalf
Cellist Laura Metcalf, renowned worldwide as a passionate solo and chamber musician, has been acclaimed for her “brilliant” playing (Gramophone Magazine) and described as “a cellist whose passion for music is as evident as her artistry and talent” (I care if you listen). She has performed throughout the US and on six continents, including South Africa, Nepal, Argentina, Qatar, Mongolia, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, and Australia. Laura’s debut solo album on the Grammy-winning label Sono Luminus reached #7 on the Billboard Charts, and was called “a way forward for classical music” by AllMusic. As a sought-after chamber musician and collaborator, Laura is drawn to projects that push boundaries and expand the definition of classical chamber music. Boyd Meets Girl, her duo with her husband, classical guitarist Rupert Boyd, tours worldwide including appearances at Caramoor, Festival Napa Valley, the Morgan Library, Moab Music Festival, Newport Music Festival and many more, has reached #3 on the Billboard Chart, and has had their music streamed over 2 million times on Spotify alone. Laura also performs regularly with the popular cello-percussion quartet Break of Reality, selected for a world tour as musical ambassadors of the US State Department. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Laura became the founding cellist of The Overlook, a string quartet dedicated to amplifying music by Black composers. She has appeared as a guest with such renowned ensembles as The Knights, Eighth Blackbird, ETHEL and more, and appears regularly as principal cellist of the IRIS Orchestra Collective. As the cellist of string quintet Sybarite5 from 2008-2021, the first-ever string quintet to win the Concert Artists Guild competition and reach #1 on the Billboard Classical Charts, she toured extensively, performing in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Library of Congress, and countless other major venues. Laura is also a concert curator and artistic director, having founded the weekly Sunday morning concert series GatherNYC, as well as guest curating for the Museum of Arts and Design, Fotografiska, and Wave Hill. She has appeared onstage with artists including Adele, John Legend, Cher, Shawn Mendes and Nas. As a devoted educator, Laura has given masterclasses and workshops at Curtis Institute of Music, The Juilliard School, New England Conservatory and countless others, and holds a cello faculty position at Riverdale Country School. Laura lives in New York City with her husband and young son Milo.

As an educator, I enjoy working with students of all ages. I have experience teaching cello and chamber music to beginners through advanced, professional level players. I also have extensive experience giving masterclasses, lectures, and workshops at schools all over the country and the world including at Curtis Institute of Music, New England Conservatory, The Jiulliard School, Eastman School of Music, and working with students in Malaysia, India, Haiti, Australia, Mongolia and more.

Currently, I hold a cello faculty position at Riverdale Country School and maintain a small private studio. Please contact me to inquire about any openings in my studio or to request a masterclass or lecture.

As a curator and Artistic Director, I am committed to thoughtful, impactful programming with a focus on classical chamber music. I am particularly interested in expanding existing notions around classical music and broadening audiences by thinking carefully about the full concert experience. I love bringing music to spaces that enhance the listening experience and reach beyond the traditional concert hall.

I am Founder and Co-Artistic Director of GatherNYC, a Sunday morning concert experience dedicated to building a welcoming, diverse community around the celebration of music. Gather, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has presented over 80 concerts since its inception in 2017, and been featured in the New Yorker and The New York Times.

I have also curated and produced concerts at Wave Hill, Fotografiska New York (where I developed and co-curated the first annual Unfiltered Music Festival, a 3-day contemporary music festival), Museum of Arts and Design, and Morris-Jumel Mansion.

I have had the honor of presenting some of the most acclaimed artists and ensembles of our time including Caroline Shaw, Anthony McGill, Laufey, Samara Joy, Rachel Barton Pine, Imani Winds, Lara St. John, members of the New York Philharmonic and Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and the Dover, Attacca, PUBLIQ, Calidore and Brentano Quartets; among many others.




Should you be interested in specific advice about your own project or organization, I am available for one-time or ongoing consulting services. Please contact me to learn more about rates and availability.
