    Veronica Swift made her first appearance at Jazz at Lincoln Center at age 11. Now all of 23 years old, Veronica Swift has drawn attention following her finish at the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition in 2015 and headlining the Telluride Jazz Festival. For her debut performance in Des Moines she will perform with The Benny Green Trio, a staple of the New York City jazz scene led by one of the most exciting swing and hard-bop pianists to emerge from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
