Tuesdays on the Terrace: Victor Garcia

Tue, Aug 20, 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.


Victor Garcia has performed with his group CALJE in Chicago and beyond for the past 10 years. He has had the opportunity to play with a multitude of artists from a wide variety of genres, such as Aretha Franklin, Arturo Sandoval, Spoon, the Temptations, Tito Puente, and countless others. In addition, he has recorded dozens of albums, two of which garnered Grammy nominations in 2005 (Angel Melendez & the 911 Mambo Orchestra) and 2008 (Sones de Mexico). Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune says “Garcia…stands as an ebullient soloist, offering a formidable technique and a radiantly polished tone.”

For this concert, Garcia (trumpet) performs with Dan Trudell (organ) and Charles Heath (drums).
