Newport Beach Summer Concert Series

The 2012 Newport Beach Summer Concert Series continues throughout the summer with a terrific line-up of jazz and contemporary musicians.   The concerts take place every Friday night through October.  All shows begin at 8 p.m. so the music begins as the sun sets.
