LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Lock Haven University winds down its celebration of Women’s History Month with a music performance by Christine Smith. This free, public performance will take place on at 6:00 p.m. on March 30 in room 06/07 of Bentley Dining Hall. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and

A talented singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Smith has toured nationally and internationally as a piano-player and vocalist with well-known artists such as Crash Test Dummies, Jesse Malin and Ryan Adams. Village Records described Smith's CD “Tomorrow Blues” as the 2006 break-out disc of the year. Smith presently writes and sings with the Philadelphia-based group Marah.
In her LHU performance, Smith will play original songs, standards and covers.
Speaking on behalf of the President’s Commission on the Status of Women, Assistant Professor of English Gayatri Devi stated, "LHU has observed many wonderful events--discussions, readings, educational presentations-- to mark Women's History month this year. Smith's music performance would be a fitting finale to all the educational and cultural contributions LHU has made to mark the celebration of women in our society."
Smith's performance is co-sponsored by the President's Commission on the Status of Women, Women's Studies, the HOPE Center, FASSt Commission, and the Office of Human and Cultural Diversity.
