There’s going to be a lot to choose from at the Celtic Arts Festival. Not the least of which will be the VES Jammers. They’re an auditioned ensemble of 3rd through 6th grade students at Vienna Elementary School, the venue of the festival. VES uses a combination of traditional and non-traditional instruments – garbage cans, for instance. Take a look!
And yeah, they do that whole flash mob thing well, don’t they? That would be the doing of VES Music Teacher, David Reynolds. If you came to our season opener in October 2011, you would have seen him as the human “beatbox” in our concert opener, the Mission: Impossible theme. But you may know him better as the guy who led that other flash mob – the VES flashmob of students doing Thriller at the 2011 Viva Vienna. Yeah, he’s that guy. That would explain things, wouldn’t it?
