Critics’ picks for entertainment in the week ahead.
VocalEssence and the St. Olaf Choir
Here’s a meeting of two groups that remain the gold standard for the richly textured Upper Midwest style of choral singing. The concert features VocalEssence’s Philip Brunelle and G. Phillip Shoultz III sharing conducting duties with St. Olaf’s Anton Armstrong on such works as José Maurício Nunes-Garcia’s “Requiem” and the premiere of a Jocelyn Hagen piece written in memory of Sigrid Johnson, a conductor with longtime ties to both VocalEssence and St. Olaf. (4 p.m. Sun., Central Lutheran Church, 333 S. 12th St., Mpls., $25-$45, 612-371-5656 or vocalessence.org)
