"Sophisticated Ladies" was the sixth annual benefit for the Center for Successful Aging (CSA) and featured Ike Jenkins and his 20 piece Big Band playing rousing favorites from the Big Band era of Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller. Jenkins is an award-winning conductor and well-known for his crisp, tight musical arrangements. His band is comprised of highly talented professional, regional musicians. 
CSA is also honored the women of Assistance League of Santa Barbara for their extraordinary service to the community. Assistance League volunteers were presented with the "Spirit of Successful Aging Award" at the concert.
This concert was produced by Rod Lathim, who has produced all the CSA benefit concerts including the recent "With A Song In My Heart I and II" concerts.
