Therry the ThereminThe Purcell School of Music is host to a massive event for Theremin lovers near Watford, Hertfordshire, UK July 27 – 30. The weekend looks really epic: performances, workshops, and master classes on playing and building the instruments. On the bill: the awesomely talented Lydia Kavina on the Classical side, and raising the flag for the avant garde, Wilco Botermans, both headlining, in addition to UK theremin makers Jake Rothman and Tony Bassett, Barbara Buchholz, Carolina Eyck, Charlie Draper, and Jon Bernhardt of The Lothars. I don’t think I’ll make it to Hertfordshire in July (wouldn’t that be nice), but if you do, do send a report. Lots of video links at the site, too, for enjoying remotely:

Thanks to Andrew Cordani for the tip! Doodle is “Therry”, from Wilco Botermans. About time the Theremin had a lovable mascot.
