Unique perspectives on the city from the people who live here.

Tag - Tuesdays on the Terrace

Jazz fans don't have to wait until the famed Chicago Jazz Festival (though the 2017 headliners were just announced!) to hear live jazz in the Windy City. This is a music lovers paradise so you can catch all types of live music on any night of the week. But there are special weekly events in the summer that make hearing live jazz a warm weather treat. The Museum of Contemporary Art hosts Tuesdays on the Terrace, the Shedd Aquarium supplies Jazzin' at the Shedd and the Jazz Institute of Chicago holds the Chicago Latin Jazz Fest (coming up this weekend July 14-16, add it to your calendar!).

Jazzin' at the Shedd

Summer in Chicago is all about enjoying the great outdoors! Picnics, patios and parks beckon as the city comes alive under the summer sun. Here are two unique, weekly outdoor events featuring live music at the Shedd Aquarium and Museum of Contemporary Art that you won't want to miss.
