Founded by cellist Laura Metcalf and her husband Rupert Boyd, GatherNYC events treat guests to classical music performed by some of New York’s most celebrated artists. In addition, guests can enjoy a taste of the spoken word, as well as artisanal coffee and pastries. GatherNYC’s opening performance will be violinist Lara St. John, whose program will feature arrangements by Kreisler, a movement from Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole, and selections from her Lavuta project, which can be described as reimagined folk tunes from the Jewish Diaspora, Eastern Europe, Balkans, and the Middle East.
