Text

Recently described as a “New Jazz Power Source” by the New York Times, cellist and composer Tomeka Reid emerged as one of the most original, versatile, and curious musicians in Chicago’s bustling jazz and improvised music community over the last decade. Now based in New York, her distinctive melodic sensibility, usually braided to a strong sense of groove, has been featured in many distinguished ensembles over the years.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside the MCA's Kovler Atrium.

 
Our annual summer performance series highlights artists from Chicago's internationally renowned jazz community.
