Newport Jazz Festival: connecting people through jazz

The Newport Jazz Festival, the not-to-be-missed event for established jazz stars and up-and-coming young talent sponsored by Natixis Global Asset Management, took place from August 4 to August 6.

Founded in 1954, the Newport Jazz Festival is one of the most prestigious and oldest jazz festivals in the world, bringing together established stars and up-and-coming talent.
Natixis Global Asset Management has been one of the main sponsors of this famous event since 2011 and it also has a scholarship program that enables young musicians to further their musical education.


"Our support for the Newport Jazz Festival really part of a broader commitment by Natixis to give back to our community, including to support the arts." David Giunta, President and Chief Executive Officer, U.S and Canada, Natixis Global Asset Management.
