About Point Richmond Music:
The all-volunteer PRM committee shares a vision of celebrating diversity and promoting the arts and community through the universal language of music. PRM concerts offer a gathering place for people of all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life, who come together to enjoy musical talent of many genres from Richmond, the Bay Area and beyond. In addition to producing its free summer concert series, the group is proud to help support year-round music in Point Richmond through its sponsorship of the Point Richmond Acoustic series and the Point Richmond Jazz series, which run October through May at the First United Methodist Church, and to foster the development of the next generation of musicians through contributions to Washington Elementary School’s music program. Twelve years of this collaborative effort have been made possible through donations of time and money from local businesses and volunteers. We are grateful to our 2013 sponsors: Chevron, the City of Richmond, Nutiva, Sims Metal Management, California Delicious, Richmond Convention & Visitors Bureau, Wareham Development, Genser & Watkins LLP, MSH Group, Mr. & Mrs. Rafael Favila, and Atchison Village Credit Union, to date. PRM committee members include Andrew Butt, Pamela Dewitt Delaney, Bryan Delaney, Duane Fitzgerald, Bruce Kaplan, Sydney Metrick, Michele Seville, and Christina Zirker, with invaluable help from many other volunteers. Special thanks to Stacey Dillon for designing our posters.
