Since her debut album, Diana Krall (performing Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 7 p.m.) has made her mark as a pianist and vocalist with a distinctive feel and an extraordinary sense of time. The Grammy-winner’s latest album, “Glad Rag Doll” (produced by T Bone Burnett), is an exploration of songs from the ‘20s and ‘30s re-imagined for the 21st century.

The album marks Krall’s fifth consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200.

Pink Martini performs its holiday concert on Monday, Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. Unparalleled purveyors of a multi-lingual blend of cosmopolitan sounds, the band delivers a festive holiday concert featuring songs from around the globe.

Led by bandleader Thomas Lauderdale, the Portland, Ore., based band will feature tracks from its phenomenal 2010 holiday album, “Joy to the World,” which featured chestnuts like “White Christmas” alongside Hebrew prayers, Chinese New Year tunes and a samba-inspired version of “Auld Lang Syne.”

The Blind Boys of Alabama perform its holiday show, “Go Tell It on the Mountain” on Friday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. The ensemble’s performance is a roof-raising musical event. Mixing gospel-tinged versions of seasonal favorites with some of the treasures from its extensive repertoire, the group share s its love of music-making in a joyous evening of soul-stirring music.

The San Francisco Symphony takes the Mondavi Center stage for a third performance in the 2013–14 season on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m.

Acclaimed Dutch conductor Jaap van Zweden, Musical America’s 2012 Conductor of the Year, makes his Mondavi Center debut with Tchaikovsky’s impassioned “Fourth Symphony.” Van Zweden’s compatriot and protégé, Simone Lamsma, is the soloist in Sibelius’s hot-blooded “Violin Concerto in D Minor.”

The Chieftains perform Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014 at 8 p.m. Filled with exceptional musicianship and the pageantry of visiting dancers and pipe bands, the band is recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. The six-time Grammy winner is still led by Paddy Moloney, who formed the band from the ranks of the top Irish musicians in 1962.

The Mondavi Center’s 2013–14 season runs through May 18, 2014 and features classical music legends, jazz greats, American icons and the best in theater, dance, circus and more.
