  Terry Wey    (b. September 1985) Boy Soprano Soloist 
Print Friendly Page 
Terry Wey Terry Wey was born in September 1985 in Bern, Switzerland. After seeing his first and still favourite opera, "Il Trovatore" by G. Verdi, at age 4 he knew exactly that he wanted to become an opera-singer.

He joined his first choir, The Berner Kinderchor, at age 6 performing in "La Boheme" in the Bernese City Opera house and other various concerts. At age 7, he joined Knabenchor Roggwil under R. Favre. Here he performed in Mozart's "Magic Flute" in Baden for the first time, followed by concert tours through Italy singing Bach's "St. Matthews Passion" with the Orchestre Symphonique Neuchatelois and performances at the "Goetheanum" and the "Tonhalle" in Zurich.

After seeing a TV-documentary on the Vienna Choir Boys he auditioned and was accepted to attend Vienna's preparations-choir. From 1995 until 1998, he was a member of the Schubert choir, one of the four concert choirs of the Vienna Choir Boys performing in more than 300 concerts. He soon became a soloist,eventually singing solos in all four choirs in tours around the world.

After leaving the Vienna Choir Boys, he recorded his two private CDs, "Born to sing" and "O Holy Night". Terry is now attending the "Musikgymnasium Vienna" studying piano.

"My voice is changing now and I hope to become a tenor. My plans for the future are mostly singing, although I am also interested in composition and conducting." — Terry Wey

Terry Wey - Music for The Court of Maximilian II
Music for The Court of Maximilian II (Hyperion CDA67579, CD) February 2007
Featuring Terry Wey (non-treble)  
"Music for the court of Maximilian II is the debut recording by the thrilling all-male ensemble Cinquecento. Based in Vienna, its six members represent five countries, bringing together and, we believe, truly ‘fusing’ the very best of their respective choral traditions. The results, gloriously captured on tape in the Austrian Dominikanerkirche of Retz, offer an exhilarating new outlook on this rich seam of repertoire as yet largely untapped." (Hyperion website)

With Terry Wey (countertenor) as member of the ensemble 'Cinquecento'
