Edwin Sanchez

Text

Summer Tuesdays come alive on the MCA’s Anne and John Kern Terrace Garden with free music highlighting artists from Chicago’s internationally renowned jazz community. This week, we feature the Edwin Sanchez Project. Sanchez is one of the top Latin music pianists in the United States and will feature original Chicago-made songs, presented in collaboration with Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Chicago pianist Edwin Sanchez, raised in Humboldt Park, carries on the city's broadminded Latin-jazz aesthetic and blends it with soul and funk. This presentation of Sanchez's most recent original work is made possible through a partnership between the MCA and Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center in celebration of SRBCC’s 50th Anniversary.

Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center is the longest-standing Latino cultural center in Chicago. Its mission is to preserve and promote appreciation of the culture and arts of Puerto Rico and Latin America, with a focus on its African heritage. SRBCC develops multidisciplinary programs focusing on youth through dance, music, theater, and visual arts. SRBCC is currently engaged in a multiyear partnership with the MCA.

Funding

WDCB 90.9 is the official media sponsor of Tuesdays on the Terrace. Tuesdays on the Terrace is made possible in part by a generous gift from Luminarts Cultural Foundation, supported by Cherilyn Murer.
