One of the most anticipated concerts in Newport Beach every year is the annual Eric Marienthal and Friends Jazz Concert to benefit High Hopes Brain Injury Program.

Last year’s concert was Covid-cancelled, but Marienthal returns to the Hyatt Regency Newport on July 11 with his backing band and special guest Rick Braun plus a secret unannounced guest.

This event is one of the largest annual fundraisers for High Hopes, which is dedicated to helping individuals recover from traumatic brain injuries.

Patrons can enjoy a VIP dining experience and the concert at the Hyatt’s beautiful outdoor amphitheater, where Host Talaya Trigueros will serve as Master of Ceremonies along with Mark Desmond, Director/Instructor, and Developer of High Hopes Brain Injury Program.
