She has worked with some of the world’s leading orchestras and chamber orchestra to date, including the Bamberger Symphoniker, NDR Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart and Zurich Chamber, among others.
Helseth and her group tour extensively across the world and have performed at some of Europe’s biggest music festivals, including Beethoven Bonn, Gstaad, MDR Musiksommer and the Thüringer Bachwochen. In the United States, the group have made appearances in Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
