Acclaimed jazz singer Veronica Swift and The Shelly Berg Trio join Faena Theater’s third annual Summer Jazz Series on June 19 to wow music lovers and jazz aficionados alike.
Summer Jazz Series will run at Faena Theater from May through September with a diverse lineup that includes both returning artists and outstanding new voices. Presented by American Airlines.
Veronica Swift and The Shelly Berg Trio
Swift has been a jazz singer since childhood. “It was my way of life since day one, my first language so to speak,” says the artist whose parents are both successful jazz musicians. She began singing professionally with industry greats at 9 years old, and this summer the songstress will serenade the audience with her award-winning musical mastery. Guests can expect an exciting reunion for Swift and Berg from their years together at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. The young singer, inspired by the likes of Nina Simone, Freddy Mercury and Lady Gaga, is looking forward to returning to the Magic City with a few lyrical surprises up her sleeve.
I won’t give specific songs away, but I will say that while I do sing American songbook, my favorite thing to do is pull out more obscure songs that have gotten buried through the decades.
June 19 – Veronica Swift with The Shelly Berg Trio
July 17 – Alicia Olatuja
August 21 – Matthew Whitaker
September 18 – Sammy Figueroa and The Latin All Stars featuring Maria Rivas
