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.


Robert Irving III is best known for his five-year tenure as musical director, producer, and keyboardist for the legendary Miles Davis. He has produced three Grammy Award–nominated albums—two for Miles Davis, Decoy and You’re Under Arrest; and Real Life Story, the Polygram debut from drummer Terri Lyne Carrington. The Robert Irving III Quintet, which introduces Barrett Harmon on trumpet, explores new, original music and expansive arrangements of more obscure standards.
