VH1 Save The Music Foundation festival features local and regional performers

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College’s radio station WXTC 88.1 FM will host its annual music festival benefitting VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, beginning at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, in the Lutheran Heritage Room of the Howard Miller Student Center.

The event is free for Thiel College students. A $10 donation at the door is suggested for members of the public. The festival will also feature a raffle for several prizes sponsored by Thiel College Student Activities.

The event will showcase several performers including Pittsburgh indie band Nevada Color, singer-songwriter Frank Marzano and Thiel student Sarah Brooks ’17. Students Ellsworth Reese ’20; Minju Kim ’20; Brant Miller ’19, performing as King Anatoliy; and Jayvon Braxton ’18, performing as Jay Lamont, will also take the stage.

“This festival has become an annual event for WXTC. We raise money for the philanthropy and raise awareness of WXTC on campus and within the local community,” said Adjunct Professor of Communication and Managing Adviser of WXTC Radio Pegene Watts. “The festival also gives students the opportunity to plan and execute a large-scale event. There will be seven acts performing from a wide range of genres. This reflects the programming on WXTC, which is—as are most college radio stations—eclectic.”

The Office of Student Life, Department of Media, Communication and Public Relations and James Pedas Communication Center are key sponsors of the event.
