Visit Orchestra 2001 in studio #8 on Cherry Street Pier to create your own "ghost music" on our Moog Theramini! You can request an appointment with the Theramini by emailing If the studio is open, you can walk right in and give it a try.

We've brought in the Theramini to celebrate the DRWC's incredible public art installation, Ghost Ship , October 4 through November 3 at neighboring Race Street Pier.

Thereminist Lydia Kavina, first taught by Léon Theremin himself, gives us great tips and tricks for playing the Moog Theremini.
