ABOUT COLUMBIA MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Columbia Music Festival is the brainchild of several music-loving communities and Columbia
College Campus Life at Columbia University in the City of New York. After many years of separate (and awesome) day-long festivals (such as Bacchanal’s spring concert, Postcrypt’s Folk Fest, Live at Lerner’s Symposium, WBAR’s WBAR-BQ), we’ve decided to bring it all together for one awesome, week-long event exclusively for Columbia University students and affiliates. Through this festival, we hope to show off the diversity of tastes and culture that Columbia—and New
York City—have to offer.
An earlier version of this post identified the kickoff concert as ‘(SIN)esthesia’; it is spelled ‘Synaesthesia’ and refers to the theme of the festival. Spectrum regrets the error.
