The Persephone Project

The Persephone Project

Presented by Penney and Logan


My Friend the Chocolate Cake string queens Helen Mountfort and Hope Csutoros have been captivating audiences for decades with their joyous onstage partnership.

This May, the duo team up with superb pianist Phillipa Safey to launch The Persephone Project, an album of luscious new original instrumental music.

For two very special shows in the intimacy of the Primrose Potter Salon, The Persephone Project will premiere music from the new album as well as revisiting favourite instrumentals from both MFTCC and Hope and Helen’s much loved former ensemble Cosmo Cosmolino.
