Bernadett Nagy

Mezzo-Soprano

Hungarian soprano Bernadett Nagy is a graduate classical singer from the class of Sasja Hunnego in the Koninklijk Conservatorium, The Hague. In Hungary she has studied at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest, where she graduated as music teacher and choir conductor.

Because of her good vocal and theoretical skills and social sensitivity, Bernadett was selected to become a regular participant in the World Youth Choir as a singer and as a section leader. During these periods she had the opportunity to work with great conductors such as Tonu Kaljuste, Frieder Bernius, Grete Perdersen, Georg Grün, Johannes Prinz, Johan Duijk and Peter Dijkstra. As a closure of her youth-choir carreer, she had the honor of singing the solo part of  In the Beginning by Aaron Copland in the summer session of 2009.

Since 2000 Bernadett is singing in several professional choirs, including the Purcell Choir, Budapest, with György Vashegyi; Hungarian Radio Choir, Budapest, with Zoltán Pad; Nederlandse Bachvereniging, Utrecht, with Jos van Veldhoven, and vocal ensembles including Discantus Vocal Ensemble with Péter Mészáros. 

As a soloist she mainly performs classical and baroque oratorios. She frequently sings at song recitals and has been involved in the premiere of several contemporary works.

Currently Bernadett is a member of the National Choir (conductor Csaba Somos). She will join BCI as Budapest faculty for the first time.
