Tuesdays on the Terrace: Jazz Links All Stars

Tue, Jul 23, 2013, 5:30–8 pm


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.

The Jazz Institute has nurtured many of Chicago’s rising jazz stars through its Jazz Links Education programs by providing a real-life training ground where an emphasis on leadership, performance and mentorship has helped them develop the professional skills needed to launch their careers. Jazz Links Alumni have opened the Made in Chicago: World Class Jazz series in Millennium Park, performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival and the Jazz Institute’s JazzCity concert series in neighborhood parks throughout Chicago, as well as at high profile private events. They were most recently featured at the 2013 Jazz Education Network Conference in Atlanta.

This concert features Marquis Hill, John Foster, and Matt Carroll.
