Neighborhood Expert: Vienna Jammers — The Big Jam Experience

The Vienna Jammers is a percussion ensemble with more than 135 children ranging from age 8 to 18 based in Vienna. Their ensemble members are devoted to sharing their passion for music with the community. The Jammers were created and are run by a beloved Vienna Elementary School teacher, Dave Reynolds.

The Big Jam is their biggest event of the year! Each of their ensembles will be performing a variety of originals, cover songs, and traditional pieces from around the world, with music guaranteed to entertain audience members of all ages.

The kids perform at Capital One Hall on Saturday, April 13th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm). This year the special guest is Yasmin Williams, a local musician and guitarist.

You may have seen the Jammers in the Vienna Halloween Parade on their float or when they play on the Town Green at ViVa Vienna every Memorial Day. It’s a great way to expose kids to some music options if they’re at all interested in getting involved. It’s also a fun show to watch.

Tickets start at $15.

I’m not only a sponsor of the event, but I’m also the mom of two Jammers. It’s a great organization and it’s one of my favorite days of the year.
