Here in Spain we are very fond of giving patron saints to everything, specially for festivity purposes :>

It would be a fun idea to establish a patron saint for all theremin players. Saint Leon for obvious reasons would be the strongest candidates, in spite oif "Saint Claire" being a good candidate too :)

To establish a patron saint is, evidently, not for religious purposes, but for fun and also to have a common day in all the world for theremin players, which would be good to appear on media. We can , too, make something special that day.

And, otherwise, "Saint Leon" it will be very soon from now: 29th of February.

What do you think of this crazy idea? ;)

my proposal is:
The Leo Theremin's birth day or the day that he invented the theremin as thereminists day.

How 'bout St. Cecilia because:

1) she is the patron saint of musicians
2) she never touched a Theremin :D

Don't forget the Holy Clara, who is already declared theremin deity by many.

(Myself, I'm a member of the church of the Holy Lucy...)

Next time you're in the Church of Holy Lucy, you'll find me in the Chapel of the Blessed Foster-Jenkins. :~)

Okay, that does it!!!

OmHoge -- and you know I mean YOU -- we're due to have a discussion. You're the ONLY person I know who also knows who Florence Foster Jenkins was. (I've got her album!)

Let's talk.

Hey, just looked her up on Wikopedia. I had heard about her but never knew her name.

The first hit on her reveals the "Queen of the Night" aria ...

Of course, there is the old joke about the "Our Lady of the Night" church... well, "Queen of the Night" works, too.
