Weekend Music Series- Avant-garde Cello: Helen Gillet
Fresh City Life is pleased to host Helen Gillet, one of the most talented cellists touring the U.S. and the world. The modern usage of the phrase ‘avant-garde’ may have lost all of its power for being used to describe things that are shocking instead of genuinely new, different and deeply creative. Remind yourself what avant-garde truly means with Helen Gillet’s encore concert at Denver Public Library. Whether she’s performing solo, in intimate new ‘chamber music’ settings, or going full throttle with various jazz-driven ensembles, Helen Gillet has been described as having “a Mingus-like passion both as a player and as a band leader, often coaxing energy and lifting the spirits into dynamic and dazzling displays of artistry.”
Helen Gillet grew up in Belgium, Singapore, Chicago and Wisconsin. She has forged a path for the cello in the New Orleans music scene since her arrival in 2002 and has performed extensively across the United States and Western Europe.
