Tuesdays on the Terrace: Douglas Ewart

Tue, Jun 18, 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.


Perhaps best known as a composer, improviser, sculptor and maker of masks and instruments, Douglas R. Ewart is also an educator, lecturer, arts organization consultant and all around visionary. In projects done in diverse media throughout an award-winning and widely-acclaimed 40-year career, Ewart has woven his remarkably broad gifts into a single sensibility that encourages and celebrates—as an antidote to the divisions and compartmentalization afflicting modern life—the wholeness of individuals in culturally active communities.

For this concert, Ewart performs in a group called “Sonic Feast,” which includes Ann E. Ward (vocal and piano), Edward Wilkerson (winds and percussion), Dushun Mosley (drums), Darius Savage, (bass), and Ewart (winds, voice and percussion).
