The Planetarium of the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw invites you to an extraordinary journey into the world of music and constellations. Next "Starry Night Concert" will take place online on 5 June 2020 at 7:00 p.m. and its guest will be Marcin Łukaszewski.
Each concert is a unique combination of live music and space visualizations displayed in the Planetarium. We will visit stars, planets and other celestial bodies, exploring distant corners of the Universe. It is both an artistic experience and a reflection on our place in the Universe. The concerts are carried out as part of the #Kopernikontheweb project: Festival of Change and Starry Night Concerts. The project was co-financed by the National Centre for Culture as part of the "Culture on the web"programme.
