The Divine Hand Ensemble brings a haunting concert to Laurel Hill Cemetery — June 2, 2018

Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance, 3822 Ridge Ave., Philadelphia

    The Divine Hand Ensemble brings a haunting concert to Laurel Hill Cemetery
    If I were looking for an instrument to set the mood in a cemetery at twilight, the theremin would no doubt be my pick. An early electronic instrument, the theremin not only sounds ethereal, but it's played without being touched. Musicians wave their hands between two antenna to produce an otherworldly hum, making a theremin performance resemble a conjuring act.
