MAHLER’S SYMPHONY NO. 4

MARCH 15

MADELEINE PEYROUX

A jazz singer who can sell a million albums is as rare as a mosh pit at a classical-music concert. But French-American singer Madeleine Peyroux did just that with Careless Love. See her perform the week after her newest album, Bare Bones, is released. Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, 612-673-0404

MARCH 28

LO CÒR DE LA PLANA

It is a brave band that aims to make it big on singing a disappearing language, but Lo Còr de la Plana has found a niche singing Occitan, a Romance language of early medieval times spoken in Southern France, Italy, and Spain. This concert marks the six-man troupe’s debut in the Midwest. Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, 612-375-7600, walkerart.org
