Boy, has this semester flown by. Each year, we mark the end of the academic year with a Spring Concert, organized by the Campus Activities Board (CAB). For weeks now, the beautiful weather has teased the summer months. But, there is nothing better than community bonding on the Hill with music. A core Holy Cross tradition is the Spring Concert. A few weeks before this, students can sign up for “The Battle of the Bands,” a night celebrating students’ accomplishments in music, having fun with friends, and the end of another semester. At this event, CAB supposedly announces who the Spring Concert performers are, and the winner of the battle gets to open for them!
This year, the Spring Concert was…drumroll please…Two Friends! Two Friends are a DJ duo whose mixes of popular music have taken the world by storm. So, this past Friday, the campus was gathered down the Hill on Freshman Field ready to let loose and dance off any concerns of finals next week. It was truly a blast and something I’d never forget.
I always look forward to the Spring Concert for several reasons. First, I am a big fan of live music. And, who doesn’t want to enjoy some great tunes with even greater friends?! It’s a time for all of us to come away from our work, and just be in tune with each other. We’re connecting with friends from our classes, old-friend groups, new best friends, and everyone in between. It’s an overall great experience for all those who participate.
Last year, we got lucky and had two concert experiences. In the fall, we had the chance to watch Kid Laroi on stage. It was actually insane, you had to be there! Then, for our usual Spring Concert, we had the Plain White T’s serenade us with “Hey There Delilah.” It’s not everyday we get to do this type of thing, so I feel privileged to have been given these amazing experiences. Any guesses as to who the next Spring Concert will be?
