The Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning's Tea & Talk program will host the free presentation, "Beethoven's Fifth Symphony: Exploring its many interpretations and permutations from the late-20th century to the present" with Annie Randall, Bucknell music professor, on Tuesday, April 1.

Randall is a musicologist whose works range from books on opera and political music to a book on pop singer Dusty Springfield (Son of a Preacher Man). She believes in crossing musical boundaries and blends research and teaching, encouraging students who want to explore popular music history. Randall's April 1 talk was rescheduled from March 25.
