For members of the Waynesboro Choral Society, this was a week of beginnings. On Dec. 4, the group performed at Waynesboro High School as one of their Christmas concerts. For Director Don Coffey, the Christmas concert “kicks off” his season and several members take advantage of this opportunity to get in the holiday spirit.
Coffey became the director of the group in 1981, only three years after he joined, due to his passion for singing. Now more than 30 years later, there are approximately 50 members, each of whom is dedicated to what they do, said Coffey. When he became the director, he cherished the idea that he was working with “the people who sing for the right reasons.”
