The recent Downbeat win by the St. Olaf Jazz I ensemble — named best large undergraduate ensemble by the magazine — has been noted by Minnesota Public Radio and Jazz Police.

"This is something I'd hoped maybe someday we'd get mentioned, and to get this award is unbelievable," Artist in Residence Dave Hagedorn tells MPR's Euan Kerr. He also notes that rehearsals for the ensemble's upcoming concert have become more intense, as band members feel compelled to live up to the award.
