The Waynesboro Community Concert Association, formed in 1936, is both the oldest in the area and the only concert association in Franklin County. Beginning in 1937, WCCA opened a concert season every September until postponing the 84th season a full year following the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer truly exceptional value for a very modest cost, and always strive to present artists of high caliberskilled at entertaining audiences of all ages and tastes.
A little history, not yet ancient history… In March of 2020, as COVID-19 developed toward the end of our 83rd season the concert association rescheduled April and May 2020 concerts into the 84th season then programmed to open in September of 2020, and soon thereafter postponed the entire 84th season a full year.
WCCA members are fantastically supportive. More than 300 had already subscribed when the postponement was announced. With rare exception they all stayed with us, and when the opening concert was held in September of 2021 membership was nearly 600, a growth of 80% over five seasons, and we had the biggest opening concert crowd in memory. We haven’t filled the 1,500-seat auditorium yet, so there’s room for more members.
We held subscription prices to $50, or $25 at the door for individual concerts. Students K-12 are admitted at no cost (K-8 with adults please). At this writing, two spring 2022 concerts remain in the 84th season. We have booked a seven-concert season for 2022-23, and advance subscription sales are available online here on the “buy tickets” page. The formal subscription campaign will be announced in March.
Thank you one and all for your strong support.
