The piper is calling me to join him at Horwitz Planetarium tomorrow night, but Retzer Nature Center, where the planetarium is located, is too quiet after dark. It seems much more inviting when the forests echo with laughter.
In case you haven't guessed by now, the planetarium will be showing a SkyLase laser light show featuring Led Zeppelin's most famous songs. I'm sure your stairway to Retzer lies on the whispering wind, because the most famous Zeppelin tune is Stairway to Heaven. (If they don't play it you should ask for your four bucks back.)
So do I surround myself with "heaven," or do I go hear the choirs of angels singing at Carroll University? The Carroll Choirs perform at the same time as SkyLase show: 8:00 p.m. Friday night.
The Carroll performance is free. At just four dollars the SkyLase show is almost free. Led Zeppelin is a recording. Carroll Choirs are live and don't permit recording. There will be other opportunities to hear the same Zeppelin tunes, but each Carroll concert is unique and you'll never hear the same concert twice.
It's an easy decision, and besides, if I really felt bad about missing the Led Zeppelin light show there's always Saturday's Legends of Rock and Roll SkyLase show featurning Led Zeppelin, among others, at noon and 1:00 p.m.
