Feist to Rock at Spring Concert

The floorboards of John M. Greene Hall will pulsate to the beat of Juno Award winner and international recording artist Feist on Friday, April 25, during the annual Rec Council spring concert.

Feist will perform with opening guest Ingrid Michaelson. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. (doors will open at 6:30 p.m.).

Feist is a Canadian singer-songwriter who performs as a soloist and with the indie rock group Broken Social Scene. She has recorded eight albums and has been nominated for the Grammy Award four times.

The Rec Council hosts a spring concert every year to provide a culmination to the year’s campus events, says Alexandra Ross-Reid ’08, a Rec Council member who is helping coordinate the concert.

“As a student organization dedicated to bringing large-scale campus-wide entertainment to the students here at Smith, we wanted to provide an end-of-the-year event that makes Smith students excited,” she said.

Tickets for the Feist concert, which were available first to Smith students before being sold to the public, have nearly sold out, said Ross-Reid, with fewer than 100 tickets left in the 2,000-seat hall.

In addition to the concert, Rec Council is hosting the annual Spring Party, this year titled “Glow Park After Dark,” on Friday, April 11, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Davis Ballroom.

For Rec Council, the pair of events is a way to send students into the home stretch of the semester in good spirits.

“We love to present our Smithies with the opportunity to gather in good company and enjoy the last days of the school year together,” said Ross-Reid.
