The popular Music in the Orchard summer concert series is back for its eighth year! The event is held once monthly from June through September at the Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa in Livermore. Guests can bring chairs and blankets and relax for hours while listening to live music and enjoying the summer sun. Local wine will be provided by the award-winning Nottingham Cellars, and local beer and food will be available for purchase. A portion of all sales will support the efforts of the Mario Pedrozzi Scholarship Foundation.
The 2022 lineup delivers something that everyone will enjoy. From rock to folk to eighties music and more, there will be tunes suitable for the whole family. See below for dates and more details about our great artists!
Tickets are available for purchase at Purple Orchid’s website and via Brown Paper Tickets. You may also buy tickets at the door on the day of the event. Children 10 years old and under enter free of charge. As mentioned above, the Pedrozzi Foundation is this year’s local beneficiary. Mario Pedrozzi, a Livermore businessman, established the organization in 2002 when he left his entire estate to graduates of the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District. The Foundation, which has awarded $5.7M in scholarships to 1,600 local students since 2008, also provides free financial aid workshops and funding PSAT testing. Proceeds from Music in the Orchard will help expand the Foundation’s impact even further and improve the future of young people in our area.
