PASADENA– Witness the Awe…The Wonder & the Mystery of the Theremin…a Musical Instrument like No Other!

Join us for a special presentation by Ed Sussman – artist, technician, and theremin musician – who will present the history of this remarkable instrument that was invented over 100 years ago. You very well might have heard the music in science fiction movie sound tracks, but now experience it live!

This unique instrument is played without touching it. See how it works and then try it yourself. This will be a fun and educational event for both kids and adults and an otherworldly musical finale on the closing of Dreaming the Universe!
