Terry Wey was born into a Swiss-American family of musicians in Berne, Switzerland in 1985, experienced a rich musical education as leading soprano soloist of the Vienna Boys’ Choir and went on to study voice with Silvija Vojnic-Purchar, Kurt Equiluz, and Christine Schwarz at the Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversität, where he also studied as a concert pianist. After winning several competitions such as the scholarship of the Migros-Genossenschaftsbund in Zurich or the International Kärntner-Sparkasse Wörthersee Music-scholarship, he started working almost immediately with leading Early Music ensembles such as The English Concert, Les Arts Florissants, Freiburger Barockorchester or Il Pomo d’Oro, under conductors such as William Christie, Thomas Hengelbrock, Marc Minkowski, Konrad Junghänel or Michael Hofstetter. He was invited to some of the most important venues and festivals, e.g. Musikverein Wien, Barbican Centre and Wigmore Hall London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Lincoln Center New York, Benaroya Hall Seattle, Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon or the Philharmonies of Köln and Essen. He has sung solo recitals at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, KKL Luzern and Styriarte Graz.
This season, he will take the stage as Hamor in Handel's "Jephtha" in Wiesbaden.
