I received a B.M. from Oberlin Conservatory and a M.M. from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. When not in lockdown, I perform in a multitude of settings -- with orchestras, chamber music ensembles, pop artists, and wedding bands, among others. I've performed in a variety of venues and festivals including Carnegie Hall, Disney Hall, Outside Lands SF, and the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA.

Exceptional rapport with the audience
Really enjoyed the concert and the playlist was ideal.
It was a birthday treat for my father's 85th birthday and he was over the moon.
Helen was wonderful - a hugely talented musician who designed a great programme, and a really skilled presenter who put us at ease during the performance. The recital was a surprise for friends and we were all blown away by it. Don't hesitate to book her.
Helen's performance was amazing! My partner was in tears, and it was quite the surprise for him. We were both so grateful to hear her beautiful music from Lisbon, Portugal through Lockdown Presents!
Lovely mix of musical styles. Very enjoyable performance.
A really great mix of classical and contemporary pieces enjoyed by all the family. Really made it a memorable experience.
Helen was amazing & had some brilliant arrangements of classical & pop songs. My dad loved his surprise concert & the family loved that they could take part in a special concert.
Thank you so much Helen!
Helen brought the gloried of live music into the intimate setting of our home.
She introduced us to the unfamiliar which will now become the sought after as well as music we have treasured over the years.
Thank you so much
Helen gave a wonderful concert as part of a farewell celebration for a work colleague heading home overseas after a 2-year secondment. Helen is a great musician with a broad repertoire and a great rapport with her audience. Her mix of "classical" and "covers" hit just the right tone. Comments from participants in the chat included "brilliant" and "magic". I would definitely hire Helen again, She was great to work with.
Helen's performance is stunning - she is so talented, and it is an amazing privilege to have a customised concert, and be able to talk to her about her music. The sound quality was exceptional, everything was so professional, and all with a personal touch.
Helen as great - all the family (including the little ones) loved her selection of music. The multi-track songs are such a great idea...will definitely book her again.
Helen's performance was just the kind of tonic our team needed. Her selection of pieces was perfect -- a mix of classical and pop which was appealing to everyone. Thank you for sharing your talents with us during these most peculiar times and brightening up our day.
Helen started by playing a cover of Africa by Toto on the cello. Awesome! It was cool to hear a bit of the thinking behind some of the arrangements as well. Definitely recommend!
