Back by popular demand, GRAMMY®-nominated saxophonist Dave Koz and Friends return to Ruth Eckerd Hall for Summer Horns! Building on the massive success of their Summer Horns projects, Koz And Friends are returning to the road with the brass-fueled, feel-good tour of the summer. Joining him this year will be saxophonists Mindi Abair, Kirk Whalum & Vincent Ingala.

It yielded four No. 1 hits. This live show is sure to be one of the hottest shows this summer and is not to be missed!
