Tuesdays on the Terrace
Corey Wilkes Quartet
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.
At 32 years of age, Corey Wilkes has established himself as one of the best creative improvising trumpeters in the modern era. Having the skill set and maturity to approach the mainstream repertoire of jazz standard as someone twice his age—while concurrently having the ability to approach contemporary hip-hop from the perspective of an MC—designates Wilkes as a global musical ambassador.
