Diana Krall in Concert

Orpheum Theatre

May 13, 2009

Don't miss a chance to hear hometown girl Diana Krall in concert at The Orpheum. Potent as both a pianist and a vocalist, Diana Krall possesses an extraordinary talent for creating music that speaks personally to every individual who hears her perform. But don't expect Diana to tell her listeners what to feel. "Tony Bennett taught me how important emotional directness is in music," she says. "It's all about how you communicate. You tell a story, but you leave it open to personal interpretation."

Once every generation an artist comes along that transcends a particular style of music and broadens its audience to the masses. For modern jazz music, that artist is undoubtedly Diana Krall. Talented both as a pianist and vocalist, Diana is rooted in paying respect to those who have inspired the art form so rich in tradition, "…I do that at all my concerts. It's important because it's not all about me. I learned it from Percy Mayfield and Jimmy Rowles and all these great artists out there who should be recognized as well."
