About

Enjoy an evening of free music on the MCA's Anne and John Kern Terrace Garden with our annual summer performance series highlighting artists from Chicago's internationally renowned jazz community.

The Jazz Institute has nurtured many of Chicago's rising jazz stars through its Jazz Links Education programs. These programs provide a real-life training ground where an emphasis on leadership, performance, and mentorship help musicians develop the professional skills needed to launch their careers.

The Ryan Nyther Quartet features Pete Benson on piano, Junius Paul on bass, Marcus Evans on drums, and Ryan Nyther on trumpet.

Hosted by Al Carter-Bey, WHPK 88.5 FM, University of Chicago.
