As the sun set behind the historic North Star House, folks sitting on the lawn tapped their feet while others closed their eyes to the fading sun as they listened to The Sierra 5 perform jazz on the courtyard stage.

After each musician ended a solo, the crowd burst into applause.

“This is the best small venue. It’s a perfect evening with a wonderful group,” said Gloria Arima, sitting next to her husband, Glenn, on the North Star House lawn.



Nearby, a group of friends gathered together at a table, eating their picnic dinners and sipping wine.

“I think it’s phenomenal having a historical home with some of the best jazz musicians in the world,” said Sue Varden, who came to listen to The Sierra 5 with her husband, Jim, and her friend, Diane Martin.




Local band The Sierra 5, all faculty members of the Sierra Jazz Society, performed in a benefit for Bear Yuba Land Trust on Sunday evening.

The outdoor concert was the second in a three-part summer jazz series for the Land Trust, the largest fundraiser of the year supporting ongoing conservation projects, trail building and outdoor community programs such as youth camps and guided treks.

Poncho Sanchez and His Latin Jazz Band will perform the final concert in the Land Trust series on Sept. 28. Learn more at http://www.bylt.org.
