Enjoy an evening of free music on the MCA’s Anne and John Terrace and sculpture garden with our annual summer performance series highlighting artists from Chicago’s internationally renowned jazz community.

Trumpeter Victor Garcia is equally adept at Latin music and pure improvisation. In addition to the numerous Chicago ensembles in which he performs, Garica has collaborated with a multitude of artists, including Aretha Franklin, Arturo Sandoval, Spoon, Victor Manuelle, Nicholas Payton, and the Temptations.

This performance features Garcia (trumpet), Rocky Yera (tenor sax), Dan Trudell (organ), and Greg Artry (drums).

Hosted by Al Carter-Bey, WHPK 88.5 FM
