Diana Krall returns to Strathmore

Krall has made her mark as one of the most successful jazz artists ever

Diana Krall hasn’t pursued the kind of high-profile mainstream projects some of her fellow jazz contemporaries have, so she doesn’t have the level of celebrity or name recognition as does, say, Harry Connick, Jr. Yet, in just over two decades of working mostly within her genre, Krall has made her mark as one of the most successful jazz artists ever. Certainly she’s no slouch, having produced 12 studio albums and three live sets in only 21 years, and constantly performing at leading concert venues around the world. Among these is Strathmore, where Krall returns for a concert presented by the Birchmere as part of a fall world tour.
