YOU can help me achieve my lofty goal of two new albums for 2015 by becoming a patron.

I have been a busy bee wrapping up a solo album and already beginning a new french big band recording.  They are both shaping up nicely and if all goes well my newest solo album w/ special guest Mark Southerland will be out in February 2015 and “Dusk in Wallonia” with my french big band should be out by April, 2015.

The total price tag for my 2 albums is $15,000.   I am looking for sponsorships of $1000 or more.  Let me know if you would like to be involved and I will send you more information.  EMAIL sponsorhelen@helengillet.com

Celebrate the world premiere of a full-length work created with the dynamic force that is New Orleans cellist Helen Gillet. Memory Palace delves into the complex process of how memories are constructed, and what happens to people when memories begin to deteriorate.

Memory Palace

Tickets cost $10-$20. Tickets are available at the UMKC Central Ticket Office and online.
