The Divine Hand Ensemble is the world’s only theremin-fronted band, led by Mano Divina Giannone. The theremin is a 100-year-old electronic instrument that Giannone plays without physical contact. Instead, he manipulates electric sound waves by moving his hands between two antennae to produce eerie, otherworldly notes. He is backed by a string quartet, two harps, vibraphone, accordion, and special guests.

Because Giannone appears to be pulling music out of thin air, some people compare his performance to a conjuring act. The Divine Hand Ensemble’s unique combination of the theremin, strings and percussion has led people to describe their music as “hypnotic, breathtaking, and mesmerizing” and “an amalgamation of magic, science, and music.”

During their October 15 Newtown Theatre performance, the Ensemble will play music from a wide range of spooky movies, including Edward Scissorhands, Ghostbusters, Wolfman, 12 Monkeys, Labyrinth, and other Halloween favorites.
