This past week revealed that our spring Concert will headline T- Pain! It is so exciting for my final spring concert to come rolling around as MCAB does an amazing job at organizing live music shows throughout the school year. Normally during the academic school year there are two major concerts put up by MCAB’s Concerts Committee in both the fall and spring semesters. The talent that the school brings really ranges in interests and performers and it is not only MCAB that does a great job at getting live concerts to campus. Organizations such as WRMC, Middlebury Musicians United, Commons, and many more are able to pull artists from around the nation to come to our campus. Here is the breakdown of major live concerts that I’ve been able to attend organized by students:
Freshman: Wale, Dead Prez, Guster
Sophomore: Miniature Tigers, fun., Timeflies , Rubblebucket
Junior: Chance the Rapper, Matt & Kim
Senior: Cloud Nothing, Vacationers, Mr. Wives (coming up), T-Pain
Some of my most memorable experiences have been at these concerts. It’s a fantastic way to blow off steam while relishing in music that feels as familiar as when you put on earbuds and also being exposed to completely new genres. That is not to say that the music scene ends on campus. I have been able to go to concerts in both Montreal and Burlington, where a wide variety of artists frequent these beautiful cities. It’s not uncommon to grab a meal and concert on a given weekend.
Music on campus is something that people enjoy and connect over together, whether it is sharing a new Spotify playlist to listen to over your Atwater breakfast or plugging the aux cord in and blasting some tunes to groove to.
