LOCKDOWN PROJECTS

During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Helen has been active in organising, editing and participating in a number of online projects to help raise awareness of the devastating impact the virus has had on the performing arts industry and to raise funds for charities including Help Musicians UK, Pinchgut Opera and the Freelance Artist Relief Fund, Australia. Projects featuring or organised by Helen have reached well in excess of 35,000 viewers since the lockdown began. The focus of these projects has not only been to help raise much needed financial support for colleagues in need, but to provide some connectivity and musical collaboration during this time of isolation. Videos below include collaborations with musicians across the globe, featuring artists such as Yvonne Kenny, Marshall McGuire and Stuart Skelton. Helen's Easter Sunday Video 'The Lord is My Shepherd' gained traction after Dawn French tweeted about it and it subsequently being featured on ITV's national programme 'Good Morning Britain'.
