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.


The Xavier Breaker Coalition can be described as a versatile group—each of its members come from different musical backgrounds, ranging from gospel to R & B, rock to jazz, hip hop to classical. Together they form a very unique sound. Led by drummer, composer, and arranger Xavier Breaker, the Coalition features Shaun Johnson (trumpet), Rajiv Halim (saxophones), Joel Ream (guitar), Marcin Fahmy (piano and keyboards), and Andrew Vogt (bass).
