David Coheley

David Coheley is the music director at Our Lady of the Assumption School in Atlanta, Georgia. Like Chris, he has a rich history with Spirit of Atlanta having marched from 1981-84, and served on staff in 1985, ’92, and ’93. “I am sincerely appreciative to the Spirit of Atlanta Board of Directors for allowing me to become part of such an extraordinary organization. My wife was a charter member of Spirit of Atlanta, and we love this corps with all of our hearts.”

David has served as a judge for WGI and DCA. He is also the percussion arranger for many local high schools as well as Second Bridge Indoor percussion.  In 2011, David was inducted into the SCGC Hall of Fame for his years of service as percussion coordinator.  During his tenure in WGI the number of competitive groups tripled and judges’ training was expanded. Mr. Coheley is percussion arranger and caption head for four bands in metropolitan Atlanta, and also is on the staff of the Atlanta Falcons Drum Line.

“Spirit of Atlanta is my drum corps home,” states David. “This organization has helped me to become the husband, father and teacher I am today.”
