Want a unique, relaxing, romantic experience? Experience the "Lumia Nights" live concert by nationally known synthesist Jonn Serrie in the University of Nebraska State Museum's Mueller Planetarium.
Two performances are scheduled by the foremost composer of space music with a romantic, mystical style: at 8 p.m. May 1, and 3 p.m. May 2. Mueller Planetarium is in the NU State Museum (Morrill Hall) at 14th and U Streets on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus.
Because planetarium seating is limited to 80, tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the front desk of the museum beginning April 24. Admission to this special live concert event is $15 ($12 for university students, faculty and staff).
This a concert of the night. As the soothing sounds of aural space envelop you, stars, planets and galaxies appear on the planetarium dome. Smooth gentle melodies and graceful space journeys surround you in an atmosphere of elegant dreams.
