Composer Jocelyn Hagen will present a recital of her works on Sunday, January 26 at 7:30 PM in NDSU’s Beckwith Recital Hall. The recital is free and open to the public. Hagen is a visiting artist/lecturer for the NDSU School of Music.
Hagen’s recital is also a celebration of her new album titled Mash Up and will feature a piece composed of Ed Sheeran’s The A Team and Debussy’s Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum. The recital will also feature love songs for baritone and duets from the upcoming opera Test Pilot. Guest artists include Kirsten Whitson, cello; Jean Marker De Vere, violin; and Timothy Takach, vocals, in addition to School of Music students.
A Valley City, ND, native, Hagen composes music that has been described as “dramatic and deeply moving” by the Star Tribune in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Her music is melodically driven, boldly beautiful, and intricately crafted. Since 2003, she has received over 40 commissions, 50 premieres, and 100 performances.
