Grammy Award winning jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall will be heading to the North Shore this summer — bringing her “Wallflower World Tour” to the Ravinia Festival. The acclaimed musician will appear at the Highland Park venue on Aug. 9.

The program will include some of the most-beloved pop songs, featured on her new “Wallflower” album, being released by Verve Records on Feb. 3. To support the release of the new CD, Krall will make appearances on “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” on Monday, Feb. 2 and on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Feb. 3.

The album has been produced by 16-time Grammy-winning producer David Foster and will include such songs as “California Dreamin’,” “Desperado” and Bob Dylan’s title track. It also will include a previously unreleased Paul McCartney composition, “If I Take You Home Tonight.”

Ravinia’s full summer schedule will be announced on March 5. Tickets will go on sale to festival supporters on March 10 — and to the general public on April 26. Tickets will be available, beginning on those dates at ravinia.org.
