DEBRA NAGY

DEBRA NAGY

Praised for her “dazzling technique and soulful expressiveness,” (Rocky Mountain News), and a musical approach that’s “distinctly sensual…pliant, warm, and sweet,” (New York Times), Debra Nagy is one of North America’s leading performers on the baroque oboe. Debra plays principal oboe with the Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society and Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland (among many others), and has been called a “musical polymath” (San Francisco Classical Voice) for her accomplished performances as a singer and historical wind player. She is the founder of acclaimed chamber ensemble Les Délices and indulges her love of late-medieval music as a regular guest with Boston’s Blue Heron and Chicago’s Newberry Consort. Inspired by a creative process that brings together research, composition in historical styles, and artistic collaboration, highlights of Debra’s recent projects include a multimedia production of Machaut's Remede de Fortune and a Baroque-Jazz fusion program called Songs without Words.
