One of the greatest passions of the Newport Beach Party, its founders, its producers, and its artists is the preservation and promotion of music education in our schools. In order for this great music tradition to continue and evolve, a passion and love for jazz must be instilled in a new generation, a generation exuberant in youth and ready to take on the world and quite possibly change the music landscape as a whole. Newport Beach Jazz Party partnered with Katie Thiroux and her amazing artistic ability to produce an official 19th Annual Newport Beach Party Charitable Painting. This is the inaugural piece, but we hope it to be the first of many as we start a new tradition. A very limited quantity of this official painting is available for sale in the lobby. The proceeds from every painting sold will be directly donated to three outstanding art programs: The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, Newport Harbor High School, and Jazz America. The following pages give you an insight into the programs you will be supporting.
