A passionate chamber musician, Helen founded the Marsyas Trio in 2009 and has since dedicated herself to the discovery and promotion of the repertoire for the flute-cello- piano trio. With a wide breadth of music that ranges from historical women composers to experimental music with electronics, a decade of work has seen the ensemble collaborate with many of the UK’s leading composers, including Michael Finnissy, Judith Weir, Elena Firsova and Laura Bowler.

The disc received international airplay and reviews in The Strad, Tempo, the Sunday Times, BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone. An upcoming CD with the Metier label is planned for release in 2023.
Helen looks forward to developing new projects with her trio at Churchill College this academic year.
