A flower, the peaceful forest, a sunset, the stars twinkling overhead…  Gazing at these, a girl is struck by the beauty of nature and asks, “Why do I sense beauty?”

A pianist calling himself “Musica” answers, exploring the common elements hidden in music and nature.  Thus, the mesmerizing conversation begins between the girl, Musica, and the Universe.

The ISU Planetarium is in the Felmley Hall of Science Annex, at the corner of College Avenue and School Street on the edge of Uptown Normal.  The Planetarium entrance and white dome faces School Street.  Free parking is available in the ISU F-67 Red-tag Faculty lot, north of the Planetarium on School Street.
