Join us for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 3–September 9, 2014, 5:30 pm–8 pm.

The Chicago Reed Quartet is a new quartet that groups together several generations of Chicago saxophone players into a collaborative ensemble. Featuring Nick Mazzarella (alto saxophone), Dave Rempis (saxophones), Ken Vandermark (reeds), and Mars Williams (saxophones).

A dinner buffet prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering is available each week for $25 per person, and features a changing menu of dishes created using fresh, locally grown produce from the MCA Farmers' Market (see menu). Tables are limited—call 312.397.4034 or email to reserve your spot.

For a more casual evening, bring a blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) to relax on the garden lawn. Hamburgers, house-made sausages, and a variety of freshly made salads may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the cash bar on the lower terrace. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the sculpture garden.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside Puck’s Café.
