The Waynesboro Community Concert Association opens its 85th concert season in September, 2022. WCCA, formed in 1936, is both the oldest in the area and the only concert association in Franklin County. Membership has grown steadily since 2016, and our seasons provide truly exceptional value for a very modest cost. We present artists of high caliber skilled at entertaining audiences of all ages and tastes.
Yes, we are excited to offer our six-concert 85th concert season, opening in September of 2022. The “buy tickets” page is the place to buy subscriptions, or individual tickets for any currently scheduled concert.
The campaign for the 80th Anniversary Season (2016-17) established a goal to increase membership to 600 within the decade. Amazingly, we reached that goal by the end of calendar 2021. The auditorium holds 1,500, so we have plenty of room for additional growth.
Responding to the virus, WCCA held no concerts in 2020, and postponed the 84th season a full year, finally opening in September of 2021. Those who had subscribed during 2020, before the postponement, stayed with us and were joined by hundreds more once we reopened the membership campaign.
We continue to hold 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).
WCCA does more for the community than simply hold concerts: as examples, we provide scholarships to graduating WASHS students continuing post-secondary education in music; invite active duty and military veterans (in the fall) and first responders & educators (in the spring) to an annual designated “appreciation” concert as our guests; and support various local nonprofit agencies with free subscriptions to offer at fundraisers.
Thank you one and all for your strong support.
