Event Description

Cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd

Cellist Laura Metcalf has performed at Chatter on several previous occasions as part of the string quintet, Sybarite 5. This time she’s teamed up with classical guitarist, Rupert Boyd, an Australian based in New York. They will perform works for cello and guitar by Piazzolla, Messiaen, and Bergmuller.

Boyd has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative”, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.” He has performed throughout North America, Europe and Australia, including at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Metcalf, as part of Sybarite 5, won the prestigious Concert Artists Guilt competition in 2011, and has given over 200 concerts with that quintet at, among many other venues, the Library of Congress and Lincoln Center. In addition, she is a soloist, orchestral musician, and teacher.


The D&M poetry duo is Don McIver and Mikaela Renz-Whitmore. Basic Human Needs Award winning poet, Don McIver is a former member of the ABQ slam team, a host/producer of KUNM’s Spoken Word Hour, the author of “The Noisy Pen,” and co-editor of “A Bigger Boat: The Unlikely Success of the Albuquerque Poetry Slam Scene.” He’s performed all over the United States, produced, curated, and hosted poetry events big and small including the 2005 National Poetry Slam, and been published in numerous magazines and anthologies.

Mikaela Renz-Whitmore is a sometimes poet and every day editor and planner. She teaches in the Voces teen writing program at the National Hispanic Cultural Center every June and has co-edited  “A Bigger Boat: The Unlikely Success of the Albuquerque Poetry Slam Scene,” “Looking Back to Place,” and “¿de Veras?: Young Voices from the National Hispanic Cultural Center.” Her work appears in various hard-to-find anthologies, and she emerges to perform only when pressed.  A lover of community and place, she works as a planner for the City of Albuquerque.

Sunday Chatter Admission prices are $15 regular, $9 for those under 30, and $5 for children under 12, available at the door. The Frequent Attender Pass gives patrons 11 admissions for the price of 10 and can be purchased at the Chatter website,
