Friday nights in quiet Vienna are loud around sunset with the sound of Concerts on the Green. The music on the green at 144 Maple Ave. E. is a mixture of rock, blues, funk, dixie, and choral music.

This past Friday, attendees gathered to listen to the US Navy Sea Chanters. Starting in May, Friday’s concert was the 12th on the green so far this summer. The U.S. Navy Sea Chanters are the United States Navy’s official chorus. It wasn’t until 1980 that women were able to sing in their ranks.

“This is the perfect way to highlight the local artists of Vienna,” said Ashley Davies, 27, a Vienna resident and Parks and Recreation Department of Vienna staff. Davies is in her fifth year of working for Vienna Parks and Recreation.
