Sounds of "Summer": "Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns" is not only the name of the 7:30 p.m. July 13 concert at the State Theatre for the Arts, 453 Northampton St., Easton, but the title of a new CD, set for release June 11. Saxophonist Dave Koz, above, second from left, is joined by saxophonists, above, from left, Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot. The album, "Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns," produced by Paul Brown (Al Jarreau, George Benson), is a collaborative effort that spotlights the four saxophonists and augments them with several other equally-talented musicians and vocalists. The album and concert features arrangements of brass-powered bands from the late 1960s through the '70s, including Blood Sweat & Tears, Sly & the Family Stone, Chicago, Tower of Power, and Earth Wind & Fire. The concert is expected to include the album's first single, The Beatles' "Got To Get You Into My Life." Tickets: 1-800-999-STATE

"Steps" up to comedy: William Connell, above left, as Richard Hannay, and Genevieve Perrier, above right, as Annabella Schmidt (one of her three roles) perform in "The 39 Steps," adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan and the Alfred Hitchcock 1935 film. There are only a few more days to see the comedy, through July 14, Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF), Schubert Stage, Labuda Center for the Arts, DeSales University, 2755 Station Avenue, Center Valley. Steve Burns (of TV's "Blue's Clues" renown) and Anthony Reimer play Clown 1 and Clown 2, respectively, reenacting all of the characters and famous scenes from the Hitchcock classic with a few props and numerous costume changes. Matt Pfeiffer, returning to PSF for his 16th season, directs "The 39 Steps." Meet the actors during a Q&A following the July 11 performance. Tickets: 610-282-WILL
