The Chicago Jazz Quartet supplied the perfect background music for the Swiss Re annual Wine Reception at the Murphy Auditorium in Chicago on November 17, 2016. This was the 4th year Chicago Jazz Entertainment helped supply the music for this event which features over 30 different wines from around the world, passed hors d'oeuvres and tasting stations.
The Murphy was built in 1926 to serve as a tangible memorial to the great Dr. John B. Murphy. The Auditorium was built on the property of the American College of Surgeons ("ACS"), with the agreement that ACS would maintain the building as a memorial to Dr. Murphy and host ACS meetings and serve as a center for education in surgery.
In 2006 the Murphy went through a restoration process and was re-opened as one of the premiere event spaces in Chicago. Because of its gorgeous architecture, historic atmosphere, and spacious setting, The Murphy has been fortunate enough to host some unforgettable events, including fashion shows, television shoots, professional sports media events, university alumni awards, and commercial shoots.
With a beautiful stage, grand piano and large area for dancing and mingling, the Murphy creates the perfect spot for corporate receptions and weddings. At the reception for Swiss Re the Chicago Jazz Quartet performed the music that Sinatra, Nat Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and many others made famous and because of the acoustics of the room and the experience of the group the music was present but not overwhelming allowing the guests to mingle, network and enjoy the different selections of wine.
