I'm hearing about a theremin concert at the MOMA yesterday. Was that one of our New York members?

That was Pamelia Kurstin.

I think MOMA like her...

[i]Pamelia Kurstin is widely considered one of the world's greatest theremin players. On an instrument primarily associated with horror and science fiction soundtracks, she creates lyricism. Her pitch, technique, and taste are equally perfect. She can play microtonal puzzles and walking bass lines; she can make her instrument sound like a violin, a human voice, or an analog synthesizer. Out of what was once a symbol of modernism, she plays music of a very emotional order.[/i]
