The Waynesboro Community Concert Association, formed in 1936, is the oldest in the area, the only concert association in Franklin County, and has offered a concert season every year beginning in 1937. But when COVID-19 reared its head, for the first time ever the Board of Directors elected to postpone the 84th season a full year. It will now open in September of 2021, with The Fabulous Hubcaps. We offer exceptional value for a very modest cost, and always present artists of high caliber who are skilled in entertaining audiences of all ages and tastes.

A little history, or maybe it seems like 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. But by July of 2020 it became apparent that we would need to postpone season 84 to September of 2021. We notified subscribers and friends and advertisers and financial supporters. A copy of our letter is at the link below.
Now, in the spring of 2021, we are poised to open the subscription campaign for our “lost” 84th season. You’re gonna love it. It’s a seven-concert season for the first time ever, with five in the fall of 2021. We are still working through elements of the pandemic such as amount of seating permitted, but we have a 1,500-seat auditorium and we are confident “the shows will go on”. Still, you’ll want to check this website from time to time for any updates.
More than 300 members bought their 84th season subscription during 2020. If you are one of them, rest assured we know that. If you’re not sure, call us at 717-609-6853. If you held tickets for the 83rd season April and May 2020 concerts (Trio Pacheco, Thomas Pandolfi), they perform in the 84th season and your tickets are still good; of course if you would like to see the rest of the 84th season you’d want a new subscription.
In a normal season we register more than 500 members, so we are anxious to welcome at least 200 back to membership before the season opens on the 12th of September. To subscribe, or to buy a ticket for an individual concert, please visit the Buy Tickets page. We will keep track, and all member tickets for our 84th season will be mailed in August of 2021. Ticket prices are $50 for the entire season. Your WCCA tickets may permit attending concerts at Gettysburg and Hagerstown if their concerts are opened on a reciprocal basis; that will be their decision based on COVID restrictions.

THOMAS PANDOLFI is one of only three performers in WCCA history ever invited to a make a third appearance. Classical pianist and Steinway artist making a departure from previous performances, as he offers “American Pop Piano.” This is Pandolfi as you have never heard him, from the “Star Spangled Banner” to “Rhapsody in Blue” to his own arrangements of music from Marvin Hamlisch, Burt Bacharach, and Barry Manilow, including a fantasy on popular American melodies like “God Bless America” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” This will be an afternoon to remember!
