“The Helix Collective obviously had fun with this program and meet its various challenges and interpretive vagaries with the steadiness and unanimity of professionals who have managed to blend into a true ensemble. These are very enjoyable performances.”

-Lee Passarella, Audaud Magazine


“If there is a book about how to make an appealing CD, the Helix Collective have surely read it.”

Helix hosts the world's first classical dance party! The group provides quickie dance lessons throughout the show. Before the night is out, people who have never danced before will be up and dancing to Bollywood, Renaissance, Salsa and Klezmer! It's a lightning-speed trip around the world, so wear your dancing shoes and get ready to party!

Helix Collective teams up with independent filmmakers and film composers to create and record unique soundtracks. Past films include Raj Jawa's Driving Thought, and Gregory J.M. Kasunich's Monroe. Film conductor Angel Velez and guest musicians join Helix Collective to record the scores.


    The ensemble also hosts The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival. This festival features screenings of independent shorts with original soundtracks played live by the group. Come be part of this multi-media experience as the films are completed right before your eyes!

Hollywood screenwriters share stories about their favorite cocktails in this dramatic­musical show. The audience is in­charge of the show. The crowd receives cocktail menus and then orders "rounds" from the group. There is a story and musical number inspired by each cocktail. Helix Collective performs the story through music and acting. Laugh with a Manhattan, cry with a ​Sazerac​, and sing along to ​The Beer Song! It’s time to share an intimate evening of great drinks, great music, and great stories!

Helix Collective began as a traditional classical chamber ensemble. Still very comfortable in the recital hall, the group has served as Ensemble-in-Residence for the Tahoe Chamber Music Society, the White Lake Chamber Music Festival, and Classical Revolution: Los Angeles. The ensemble's critically acclaimed debut album, All In, includes trios by Madeleine Dring, William Grant Still, and world premieres of Charles Ruggiero and Phil Popham. In addition to a trio program, Helix can also offer a quartet program for flute, oboe, piano and cello. This program includes "The Biggest Little Dances" and “Welcome to Tahoe: A Musical Adventure Guide,” celebrating the creative world of Nevada. It is written by Phil Popham and was commissioned by the Tahoe Chamber Music Society.

Los Angeles-based Helix Collective performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of classical, world, and rock n' roll. At performances you will find yourself dancing, singing, banging on tables and always having a fantastic time! The ensemble is at home in nightclubs and on the concert stage. Called "dizzyingly virtuosic [with] exquisite musicianship and world-class range" by The Free Times, the flexible ensemble includes flute/piccolo/alto flute, oboe/English horn, cello, piano and percussion. The group has released two critically acclaimed albums. All In was released in 2009 followed by World Dance Club in 2013.
