Music for the Hearing Eye

Music for the Hearing Eye

Presented by the Divine Hand Ensemble on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 6:00 PM

This summer the Divine Hand Ensemble returns to Laurel Hill for their annual performance among 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, classical guitar, two harps, a glockenspiel, a soprano and a tenor, together rendering an unforgettable listening experience. Bring your own blankets or beach chairs, picnics, and/or beverages.

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 a selection of contemporary and classical compositions for the twenty-first century audience.

This twilight concert will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 6:00 pm, with a scheduled rain date of Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 6:00 pm. Gates open at 5:00 pm. Ticket holders can check in at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance, 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot directly across the street from the Gatehouse.
