Debra Nagy (recorder, double reeds and voice) is in demand as a soloist and collaborative musician on both coasts. One of the country’s top baroque oboists, she has been hailed for her “dazzling technique and soulful expressiveness” (Rocky Mountain News) and frequently performs with baroque ensembles and orchestras in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and New York. She is the founder of Les Délices, an ensemble dedicated to chamber music of the French Baroque, and maintains her avid interest in fifteenth-century music as a member of Ciaramella. She has also been a guest artist with Piffaro, the Newberry Consort, and Blue Heron. She recently completed her doctorate in Early Music at Case Western Reserve University, where she has directs the instrumental Collegium in programs spanning the fourteenth through seventeenth centuries, and has taught medieval and renaissance notation. A graduate of Oberlin, Debra was the first-prize winner in the 2002 American Bach Soloists Young Artist Competition, spent 2002-2003 researching Renaissance double reed instruments in Brussels and Amsterdam on a Belgian American Educational Foundation Grant, and received a 2007 Eva L. Pancoast Fellowship to support research in Paris in the spring of 2008. Debra can be heard on the Capstone, Bright Angel, Naxos, Hänssler Classics, and ATMA labels and has had live performances featured on CBC Radio Canada, Klara (Belgium), NPR’s Performance Today, WQXR (New York City) and WGBH Boston.
