A top-ranking graduate of the Zoltán Kodály High School of Music, Nagy was admitted as a Bitó Scholar to the unique double degree program of the Bard College Conservatory of Music where his studies focus on the bassoon and Japanese language and literature. He is a student of Patricia Rogers and Marc Goldberg and studies as well with cellist Luis Garcia-Renart. Over the past 10 years Nagy has won numerous competitions and was also a recipient of the Kodály Prize for his excellence in music and academics. In August 2012, he was named a Distinguished Visitor of Táchira County in Venezuela while was a teaching artist at the inaugural San Juan de Colòn Music Festival. Nagy recently appeared as a soloist with the American Symphony Orchestra lead by music director Leon Botstein and on the Bard Conservatory's first European Chamber Music Tour. He recently took on the role as director of development for Contemporaneous. This year, Nagy will spend his third summer at the Castleton Festival playing operas and symphonic programs under the baton of Lorin Maazel.
