One of the few outstanding baroque oboists in the United States, Debra Nagy has been hailed for her “dazzling technique and soulful expressiveness” (Rocky Mountain News) and deemed a “baroque oboist of consummate taste and expressivity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). She performs with ensembles around the country, including the American Bach Soloists, Apollo’s Fire, Boston Early Music Festival, and others, and was recently appointed principal oboe with Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society.
