A new introduction to our Chelmsford campus this autumn will feature monthly Music at Lunchtime concerts, given by aspiring young professional musicians and singers.

Dreams of the Ether uses music, narration, and projected video to tell the astonishing tale of the world's first mass-produced electronic instrument and its mysterious inventor, Leon Theremin. Interspersing the dramatic tale with pieces from classical compositions, science-fiction films and television classics, the story spans two world wars and three continents, sees musical instruments transformed into tools of political espionage, and features a cast ranging from Lenin to the Beach Boys.

Discover the fascinating story of the theremin and its eponymous inventor. Hear the music of tomorrow, today!

This performance is part of our Lunchtime Concert Series.
