Saturday, April 8, 8 pm: Gospel Concert with Maria Muldaur
We are very excited to present Maria Muldaur in this special Gospel Music show. She performed at the Church in December 2015 as part of the Point Richmond Acoustic series. If you were there, you won’t forget what an incredible night of music it was! Almost everyone knows Maria for her hit song “Midnight at the Oasis,” but Maria is also a musical ambassador who has brought her mix of Blues, Jazz, Pop, Folk, Old-time and Gospel music all over the world and has recorded more than 40 solo records. When she performed her Holiday Show here, she was taken with the beauty of our Church and expressed an interest in performing an evening of Gospel music for us. So, we are pleased to have her return once again.
We suggest you get your tickets soon as this concert will sell out sooner than later. Tickets are a reasonable $20 and are available online at http://firstmethodistpointrichmond.eventbrite.com?s=74343704 .

Friday, April 28, 7:30 pm: Point Jazz presents Jacob Szekely Trio
Szekely has created a unique musical tapestry that incorporates the richness of jazz improvisation, the structure of classical music and the edginess of rock into its own alchemy which Szekely calls rock chamber jazz. A risk taker who generally went with the first takes in the studio, he’s created an album that expands the sonic culture of the cello and showcases the influences of classical, jazz, funk, rock and East Indian music. His compositions are highly complex yet always have groove at their core. Szekely explains the genesis of his flexible, electric, groove-based ensemble known as the Jacob Szekely Trio or JS3.
Tickets $18 online at www.prjazz.org or $25 at the door.

Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/US), with their unique sensibility, push the limits of what can be done with two voices and an instrument. The duo’s multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of Roots, Pop, Blues and Jazz. Their musical story began in Scotland with a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art. This year, Gypsy Soul is celebrating 20 years of doing just that. Over their 20-year career, the pair has had a Top 40 hit with “Silent Tears” and have won numerous songwriting and performance awards including International Acoustic Music Awards, Independent Music Awards, Lilith Fair and others. They’ve earned over 1.6 million downloads and sold out numerous theaters including Triple Door and Musical Instrument Museum.
