Hear in Now is a collaborative string trio that performs original jazz compositions. The group brings together elements from their individual backgrounds and regions for a unique sound experience that explores improvisation through composed pieces. Having been exposed to and mentored by luminaries such as Anthony Braxton, Nicole Mitchell, George Lewis, Butch Morris, William Parker, and Sabir Mateen, as well as organizations such as the AACM and the Black Rock Coalition, the group’s repertoire is an amalgamation of a spectrum of musical influences.

Tuesdays on the Terrace

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.

Dine on our terrace and enjoy a buffet, which features a changing menu of themed dishes using fresh, locally grown produce from the SOAR Farmers Market. Reserve a table by calling 312-397-3805. The buffet is $27 per person.

For a more impromptu evening, open seating is available on our terrace or bring a blanket to relax on the lawn. Food may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the bar in the sculpture garden.

Sorry, outside food and beverages are not allowed.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside the MCA Café.
