Tuesdays on the Terrace: Tomeka Reid

Tue, Jun 11, 2013, 5:30–8 pm

Join us for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 4–September 24, 2013, from 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 international barbeque and side dishes created using fresh, locally-grown produce from the MCA Farmer’s Market (see menu details). Tables are limited—call 312.397.4034 or email to reserve your spot.

For a more casual evening, bring your own blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) for a relaxing evening 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.

Stop by our outdoor Summer Studio station for a hands-on art-making experience that’s fun for all ages.


Chicago based cellist, composer, and educator Tomeka Reid has been described as “a remarkably versatile player,” (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). 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.

For this concert, Tomeka performs with Jason Roebke (double bass) and Charles Rumback (drums).
