Tuesdays on the Terrace: David Boykin

Tue, Sep 10, 2013, 5:30–8 pm

Join us for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 4–September 24, 2013, from 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 international barbeque and side dishes created using fresh, locally-grown produce from the MCA Farmer’s Market (see menu details). Tables are limited—call 312.397.4034 or email to reserve your spot.

For a more casual evening, bring your own blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) for a relaxing evening 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.

Stop by our outdoor Summer Studio station for a hands-on art-making experience that’s fun for all ages.


David Boykin is one of the most original and dynamic artists in the Chicago music scene.   He is a composer, bandleader, and a multi-reed instrumentalist performing on the tenor and soprano saxophones, the Bb soprano and bass clarinets, and the drum set.  He has received many grants and awards for his talents as a composer.  He is the leader of the David Boykin Expanse; founder of Sonic Healing Ministries; and an occasional collaborator with a few other artists.

The group’s size has varied but its current core consists of Nicole Mitchell (flute), Josh Abrams (bass), Jim Baker (piano), and Marcus Evans (drums).
