Maggie Brown embodies a powerful and passionate performance, whether she is presenting with her own trio or with Orbert Davis’s full 60-piece Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Orchestra. Though her upbringing is rooted in jazz, Brown is comfortable singing various genres, including blues, gospel, pop, and even rapping, with impressive conviction and flow. It is hard to put her in a single category or genre. It is, however, easy to see that this seasoned artist is a true entertainer, and not just another singer.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside the MCA's Kovler Atrium.



Due to construction, dining options for Tuesdays on the Terrace in June is limited. Tables on the upper terrace are available on a first-come basis and there will be no table service. Open seating is still available on our lower terrace and lawn. Sorry, outside food and beverages are not allowed.
