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.

Maggie Brown is a tremendously talented singer and performer who uses her gift to not only entertain, but educate as well. Brown is the daughter of the late Oscar Brown, Jr., a world renowned composer, social activist, and legendary giant on the jazz music scene. Mr. Brown passed down his artistic integrity to his daughter who now uses her own voice to create images that excite and inspire. For 19 years, the songstress has nationally toured her one-woman show, “LEGACY: Our Wealth of Music,” which follows the history and evolution of African American music and covers a wide range of musical forms.

Hosted by Al Carter-Bey, WHPK 88.5 FM.
