Jocelyn Hagen

Jocelyn Hagen (b.1980), a native of Valley City, North Dakota, composes music that has been described
as “dramatic and deeply moving” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis/St. Paul). Her first forays into composition
were via songwriting, and this is very evident in her work. Her music is melodically driven, boldly
beautiful, and intricately crafted. Since her graduation from St. Olaf College in 2003, Jocelyn has
received over 40 commissions, 50 premieres, and 100 performances.

In 2010 Jocelyn was awarded a McKnight Artist Fellowship. She has also received grants and awards from ASCAP, the American Composers Forum, Minnesota Music Educators Association, VocalEssence, the Yale Glee Club, the Lotte Lehman Foundation, the Sorel Medallion Competition, the Cincinnati Camerata, the University of Minnesota, and the San Francisco Song Festival. Her commissions include the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota, the North Dakota Music Teacher’s Association, The Singers – Minnesota Choral Artists, Trio Callisto, Cantus, the St. Olaf Band, NDSU Gold Star Band, and the Copper Street Brass Quintet. Her work is published by Graphite Publishing, Santa Barbara Music Publishing and Boosey and Hawkes.
