Jocelyn Hagen

Composer – Speaker

Jocelyn composes magical, dramatic and deeply moving music. A majority of her work features our most universal instrument: the human voice. Her commissions include Conspirare, The Minnesota Orchestra, the American Choral Directors Associations of Minnesota, Georgia, Connecticut and Texas, the North Dakota Music Teachers Association, Cantus, the Boston Brass, the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, and The Houston Chamber Choir. Recently, Jocelyn was inspired by the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci and has created an original score synced with video and animations from da Vinci’s writing. Jocelyn uses multimodal and compositional narrative to deepen our understanding and allow us to “rehear music” in a new and unique way.
