The Pasadena Pops Rusnak Summer Concert Series reached its midway point on Saturday, July 23, with “Aretha: A Tribute” concert to celebrate Aretha Franklin. Broadway diva Capathia Jenkins’ soaring voice entertained the audience with many of the Queen of Soul’s greatest hits as they enjoyed picnic dining in the beautiful setting at the L.A. County Arboretum.
