Jocelyn Hagen composes music that has been described as “simply magical” (Fanfare Magazine) and “dramatic and deeply moving” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis/St. Paul). She is a pioneer in the field of composition, pushing the expectations of musicians and audiences with large-scale multimedia works, electro-acoustic music, dance, opera, and publishing.
Operatic Tenor Nathan Granner is world renowned as a solo and collaborative artist. His buoyant, elegant personality and musicality shines from every stage. On the opera stage Mr. Granner’s voice fills the space with a beautiful, lyric timbre hearkening back to tenors of the golden age, but his emphasis in contemporary music and post-modern pop art is a bridge leading to great adventures and rare experiences.
Participate in a discussion surrounding the stories of women in choral music, and why it’s so important that these stories are told by women composers. An in-depth look at Hagen’s new evening-length choral work Songs for Muska will be featured, along with additional resources to further your listening.
