Concerts at CAM

Boyd Meets Girls comprises Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd and American cellist Laura Metcalf.

Castlemaine Art Museum is hosting two very special concerts next month.

CAM will welcome a visit by the National Youth Choir of Australia on Friday July 5.

The choir exists to inspire and empower young Australian singers, developing commitment to music and the highest standards of vocal ensemble performance.

This will be the choir’s first concert of their 2024 season and will be an event not to be missed.

Directed by Warren Trevelyan-Jones, pieces include the acclaimed Passing of the Year by Jonathan Dove, John Rutter’s Hymn to the Creator of Light, and music by various Australian composers.

The concert will run from 1pm to 2pm.

Numbers are limited, bookings essential at

CAM will also welcome cello and guitar duo Boyd Meets Girl on Friday July 12.

Boyd Meets Girl combines the thrilling virtuosity of two world-renowned soloists, with thoughtful, eclectic programming that effortlessly blends beloved classical works by composers including Debussy, Bach and Schubert, with their own virtuosic and surprising takes on Radiohead, Beyoncé, The Beatles and others.

Comprised of Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd and American cellist Laura Metcalf, the duo has performed around the world, from Kathmandu to Hawaii, and from Sydney to their home in New York City.

Their debut album reached No. 3 on the Billboard charts, and to date has received more than four million streams on Spotify, and recent appearances include Caramoor, Moab Music Festival, Newport Classical, The Morgan Library, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This performance holds a special connection, with Rupert Boyd performing at CAM – an art museum that holds works in its collection by his great-grandfather, artist Penleigh Boyd.

The concert will run from 6.30pm-7.30pm. For tickets visit
