Ben Kweller to headline MVC’s Fountain Day

The Mount Vernon Campus’ annual Fountain Day concert and festival will feature singer Ben Kweller.

The theme for the April 28 event, “Turning to Awareness,” will focus on international issues such as the crisis in Darfur and the environment, its organizers said.

“There are going to be activities that have a true impact on the world,” said Jennifer Solt, coordinator of Mount Vernon Life Student Activities. Organizations like Green GW and STAND will be involved with activities like a tree planting and a photo display, she said.

Other Fountain Day staples of tie-dye, a henna artist and refreshments will also be included this year.

The event begins at 3:30 and is free to all GWorld cardholders and one guest. Last year’s performers included Ben Lee and Aqualung.
