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.

Born and raised in the Chicago area and a graduate of St. Xavier University in Chicago, Junius Paul is well-established in many genres, ranging from jazz to hip-hop, house music, funk, classical, and gospel.  He has shared the stage with such artists as Wynton Marsalis, Curtis Fuller, Donald Byrd, Fred Anderson, Roscoe Mitchell, Donald Harrison, Kahil El’Zabar, Hamiett Bluiett, Nona Hendryx, Chico DeBarge, Eric Roberson, KRS-One, Dee Alexander, Roy Hargrove, and Corey Wilkes, to name a few.  Junius also performs internationally, notably the Southport Weekender Festival (Southport, England), the Sons d’hiver Festival (Paris, France), the Made In Chicago Series (Poznan, Poland), the INNtone Festival (Austria), as well as festivals in Ghana, Italy, and Brazil.
