MCA’s Tuesdays on the Terrace:
Starting June 1! Returning to the outdoor sculpture garden this summer, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago hosts the popular jazz concert series Tuesdays on the Terrace featuring Chicago’s quintessential jazz musicians performing on the MCA’s terrace. Every Tuesday evening from June 1 to August 31, from 5:30-8 p.m., and with support from Luminarts and media sponsor WDCB 90.9 FM, Tuesdays on the Terrace features a line-up of the city’s premiere jazz vocalists, composers and instrumentalists and is free to the public with advance reservations. Presented in a safe, socially distant format, visitors can enjoy light fare and refreshments from the bar, and bring their own food while relaxing on the terrace and sculpture garden lawn. Reservations for individuals and groups are limited due to capacity restrictions and will be available online or by calling the MCA Box Office at (312) 397-4010.
