The Historic New Orleans Collection’s spring Concerts in the Courtyard series concludes Friday, June 21, with singer and cellist Helen Gillet.

Raised in Belgium, Singapore, Illinois and Wisconsin, Helen Gillet arrived in New Orleans in 2003, where she has studied and performed with members of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Astral Project, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Mardi Gras Indians and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Her training is rooted in western classical cello, North Indian Hindustani vocal ragas, free improvisation, New Orleans jazz, funk, country rock and French chansons. Gillet has two self-released albums: “Newton Circus” (2009)—by her French chansons band Wazozo, and her latest instrumental album, “Running of the Bells” (2011) by the Helen Gillet Trio, which received a four-star review in the October 2011 issue of Downbeat magazine.

In addition to the performance, the June concert will feature Praline Bourbon Milk Punch provided by the Sazerac Company family of brands—a leading U.S. spirits supplier, with the world’s most decorated distillery and a portfolio of award-winning brands. Three complimentary drinks are included with admission. The locally based office supplier Associated Office Systems, or AOS, is the event sponsor for the spring 2013 series.

Gulf Coast native F.J. Wilson, author of the newly released “The Hornet Slayer,” will be signing copies of the book in The Shop at The Collection during the event, as well.

The Historic New Orleans Collection is proud to present its sixth season of Concerts in the Courtyard. Since 2008, these events have offered a fun, casual way to kick off the weekend. Each show features live outdoor performances by Louisiana musicians, cocktails and extended hours to visit the shop and the first floor of the current exhibition.
