Having the skill and maturity to approach the mainstream repertoire of jazz standards with his own unique sensibilities and combines them with his deep appreciation of hip-hop, Corey Wilkes has established himself as one of the best improvising trumpeters in the modern era. He continues to bring his brand of musicianship and talent to the forefront of the genre. His soulful notes can be heard gracing a variety of contemporary projects including sets by DJ Logic, Osunlade, and Josh Deep, as well as tracks on Hidden Beach Recordings Presents: Unwrapped Vol. 4 and Kahil El Zabar’s Ascension Loft Series.

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.
