Through the lens: the return of SpringFest

April 27, 2022

UVM Program Board’s annual SpringFest made its highly anticipated return April 23, following two years without the traditional spring concert as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The return of SpringFest marked something of a return to normalcy, and brought with it a liveliness reflected in performers and student crowd-members alike. Representing a diverse combination of genres, performers All Night Boogie Band, Annie DiRusso and SAINt JHN played sets that provided much-needed entertainment as UVM finals season draws near.

Eric Scharf, Vermont Cynic managing editor, Photo Editor Sophia Balunek and staff photographer Josh Harwood captured the energy of the performers and students from both the pit and within the crowd.
