Patrick Terry            Countertenor

Born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, Patrick earned his Bachelor's of Music from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2014 where he studied with Adriana Zabala. Patrick sang in the chorus of the Minnesota Opera world premieres of Cuomo's Doubt and Puts' Silent Night.

His concert work included the Alto Soloist in the Vivaldi Gloria and Bach's Magnificat with the Minnesota Oratorio Society. He has sung in Duke's Hall in the final round of the Nancy Nuttall Early Music Prize, placed second in the Joan Chissell Schumann Lieder Competition, and won the Maureen Lehane Vocal Award held at Wigmore Hall.

Patrick has been seen touring England with the Merry Opera Company's staged production of Handel's Messiah and as soloist with the RAM/Koch Foundation Bach Cantata series and the English Baroque Choir.

His operatic engagements include singing Oberon in Chicago Summer Opera's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Ottone in L'incoronazione di Poppea and Ruggiero in Alcina with the Royal Academy Opera, and he was a Studio Artist in the Chautauqua Opera Company's 2016 season.

In the fall he began the Royal Academy Opera course where he studies with Michael Chance and Lawrence Zazzo. Patrick is supported generously by the Josephine Baker Trust.
