Bucknell Music Department will present Beethoven 250: a three-day celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday on Saturday through Monday, Feb. 1-3, in the Natalie Davis Rooke Recital Hall, Sigfried Weis Music Building. The free, public concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 1 and 3, and at 4 p.m. on Feb. 2.

Concerts will feature guest artists Lucy Russell, Andrew Willis, and Natasha Brofsky, as well as Bucknell piano faculty members Sezi Seskir and Qing Jiang, performing chamber and solo works of Beethoven.
