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.


Chicago-based cellist, composer, and educator Tomeka Reid is equally adept in classical and jazz contexts. Reid predominantly finds herself in experimental and improvisatory settings and composes for a wide range of instrumentation, from big band to chamber ensemble. Reid’s music combines her love for groove along with freer concepts. She performs with Charles Rumback on drums, Clark Summers on bass, Scott Hesse on guitar, and Cameron Pfiffner on flute and sax.
