One of the most talented guitarists of his generation, Australian born Rupert Boyd is the recipient of numerous prizes, including the AndrÃ©s Segovia Award from the Manhattan School of Music.
In 2004 Rupert graduated with First Class Honours from the Bachelor of Music degree at the Australian National University School of Music, where he studied with Australiaâ€™s renowned guitarist Timothy Kain. Later that year he moved to the United States to undertake a Masterâ€™s degree at the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with David Leisner. In 2008, Rupert completed studies with Benjamin Verdery at the Yale University School of Music, from which he received the Artist Diploma degree.
Rupert has performed at some of New Yorkâ€™s most prestigious classical music venues, including Bargemusic, The New York City Classical Guitar Society, The Monkey and The 92nd Street Y. In addition to winning the AndrÃ©s Segovia award from the Manhattan School of Music, Rupert was a winner of the Lillian Fuchâ€™s Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Eisenberg-Fried Concerto Competition, which resulted in a performance of Rodrigoâ€™s Concierto de Aranjuez with orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Leighton Smith.
A strong interest in chamber music led Rupert to form the Australian Guitar Duo with guitarist Jacob Cordover. The duo has performed extensively throughout Australia and in the United States. They were a Prize winner of the Chamber Music section of the Australian Guitar Competition and they have also had a recital broadcast on the Australian Broadcasting Corporationâ€™s Classic FM â€˜Young Australia Seriesâ€™.
