Presented by the Divine Hand Ensemble on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 6:00 PM
This summer the Divine Hand Ensemble returns to Laurel Hill for their annual performance amongst the crypts. Witness Mano Divina, leader of the Ensemble, harness electricity with his fingertips and draw music out of the air as master of the Theremin, an early electronic musical instrument controlled without discernible physical contact from the player. In addition to this rare instrument, the ensemble includes a string quartet, harps, vibraphone, marimba, accordion, and flute, together rendering an unforgettable listening experience. Bring your own blankets or beach chairs for this outdoor concert!
The Ensemble has performed at venues throughout the region including Sellersville Theater, PhilaMoca, The Franklin Institute, and a special concert for Pope Francis during the World Meeting of Families in 2015. Their music has been described as hypnotic, breathtaking, and mesmerizing, an “amalgamation of magic, science, and music.” Thus, there are few more appropriately ethereal settings to take in the power of this performance than historic Laurel Hill Cemetery. The Ensemble will be performing beautiful and healing music, which is needed now more than ever to lift spirits out of these dark time.
