Tuesdays on the Terrace: Jimmy Ellis

July 16, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


A native Chicagoan who studied under Capt. Walter Dyett at DuSable High School, Jimmy Ellis (saxophone) has worked with Nat King Cole, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Sammy Davis Jr., Sarah Vaughan, and Pearl Bailey.

Join the MCA for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 4–September 24, 2013, from 5:30 pm–8 pm.
For a more casual evening, bring your own blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) for a relaxing evening 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.
