3 min read

MUSIC Matters, a student organization working to advance social change through music, hosted their annual SpringFest concert at Palmer Field on Saturday. As one of the largest student-run events at the University of Michigan, according to the MUSIC Matters website, SpringFest aims to bring the campus community together through advocacy, dance and music. About 200 music lovers within the U-M community attended this year’s event.

This year, 10 student music and dance groups performed at the eight-hour festival, which featured food trucks and sponsored giveaways. MUSIC Matters also partnered with other student organizations including Wolverine Support Network, to offer the opportunity to connect with a diverse array of campus organizations.

LSA junior Anna Lehrer served as this year’s SpringFest chair for MUSIC Matters. In her role, she oversees the entire planning process, which started in summer 2021. Lehrer said one of her favorite things about the festival is the way it introduces students to the campus music scene and provides student artists an opportunity to perform.
