Pedrozzi Foundation LogoMark your calendar for the last Thursdays of June, July, August and September for the Fourth Annual Music in the Orchard Summer Benefit Concert Series at the Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and relax under the olive trees of Livermore’s finest resort at 4549 Cross Road to enjoy talented musicians while supporting local students.

The Pedrozzi Foundation is once again a beneficiary of the enjoyable outdoor concert series presented by the Purple Orchid, Nottingham Cellars, Altamont Beer Works, and Sauced BBQ. The Foundation was established by Livermore businessman Mario Pedrozzi, so it is appropriate for local businesses to join together to support  local students.

This year’s line-up includes:

  • Meredith and The Mercenaries on June 30
  • Michael Beck Band on July 28,
  • Crawdad Republic on August 25
  • Toree McGee on September 29

All concerts are from 6-9:00 pm.

Wine by Nottingham Cellars, beer by Altamont Beer Works and food by Sauced BBQ will be available for purchase. A portion of proceeds from ticket, beverage and food sales will support the work of the Pedrozzi Foundation. No outside food or beverage allowed.

The concert proceeds help expand the Foundation’s impact. In addition to awarding scholarships to Livermore students, the Foundation works to help create a career and college-bound culture among all Livermore students and families – especially those in underrepresented and underserved communities. Partnering with the school district to fund PSAT testing for all sophomores and hosting free workshops on paying for college and applying for financial aid are a few ways the Foundation is helping students reach their potential. The Foundation recently awarded $437,000 in scholarships to 114 local students.  Learn more at
