UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and American singer Veronica Swift will perform at the Savoy JAZZFest and the Turku Jazz Festival in March.

The concert program features jazz classics that Swift, acclaimed as a scat singer, shapes into a new form. Orchestral arrangements of Swift’s repertoire are arranged by UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s artistic director Ed Partyka (US), who also conducts the concerts.

Veronica Swift is a 26-year-old American jazz and Bebop singer. As an offspring of very musical family, she started touring at the age of 9, and her debut album Veronica’s House of Jazz was released the same year in 2004. Swift has released four solo albums, graduated from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and toured with numerous top musicians, e.g. with Benny Green and Wynton Marsalis. www.veronicaswift.com

The Savoy JAZZFest will be held for the third time on 4–7th of March 2021. The main theme of the festival is “With Strings,” meaning jazz and rhythm music ensembles reinforced with strings. The artistic director of Savoy JAZZFest is trumpet player Jukka Eskola. The rest of the festival program will be announced in January. www.savoyteatteri.fi

Finland’s second oldest jazz festival Turku Jazz has delighted music fans with its unique atmosphere since 1969 and will do it again 4–7th of March 2021. Most of the performances take place on one of the three stages of Logomo’s Teatro venue. Venues and performers for the other days of the festival will be announced during January. www.turkujazz.fi
