Join us for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 3–September 9, 2014, 5:30 pm–8 pm.

A dinner buffet prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering is available each week for $25 per person, and features a changing menu of dishes created using fresh, locally grown produce from the MCA Farmers' Market (see menu). Tables are limited—call 312.397.4034 or email to reserve your spot.

For a more casual evening, bring a blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) to relax on the garden lawn. Hamburgers, house-made sausages, and a variety of freshly made salads may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the cash bar on the lower terrace. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the sculpture garden.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside Puck's Café.


Corey Wilkes has established himself as one of the best creative improvising trumpeters in the modern era. His stylistic versatility has been recognized and praised from numerous critics and fans alike. The New York Times has cited his “smartly balanced bravado, power and control.” The Corey Wilkes Quintet features Corey Wilkes  (trumpet/efx/percussion), Justin Thomas (vibraphones), Robert “Baabe” Irving III (keyboard), Junius Paul (bass), and Xavier Breaker (drums).

Hosted by Al Carter-Bey, WHPK 88.5 fm
