RIPON — The Ripon Arts League has one program left in the season.

The season finishes on Tuesday, March 13, with the High Sierra Jazz Band.  Formed in 1976 and led by Pieter Meijers, the band has been a consistent winner at the Sacramento and Monterey Jazz Festivals.  A poll of readers of the American Rag gave High Sierra the second most popular group with Turk Murphy first and Duke Ellington third.  In 2000, they were voted the best traditional jazz band in the country.

RAL members may attend one of the two remaining concerts at Kindred Arts in Manteca.

On Feb. 26, Michele You (violin and piano) will perform and on March 18 is the Stanford Woodwind Quintet.
