Romy Nagy †
Born in Gera, Romy Nagy had her first cello lesson at the age of 8 from Bettina Formella and extended her early musical training by studying at Weimar’s Special School of Music Belvedere and under Professor Gerhard Mantel at Frankfurt am Main’s University for Performing Arts and Music.
In 1996 she started her study at the Hanns Eisler Music School in Berlin under Professors Michael Sanderling und Josef Schwab. During this period she also played occasionally with Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin and Staatskapelle Weimar.
Nagy has been a permanent member of the Chamber Orchestra Berlin from 2000 to 2019, has won many prices, has recorded, performed and toured over five continents.
Alongside an intense chamber music programme she also teaches and is deeply involved with the therapeutic results music can achieve and, as a result, was studying the topic for a master’s degree at the Berlin University of the Arts.
