Wisconsin talent

Wisconsin-born countertenor Patrick Terry was one of five singers selected to enter the prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at London's Royal Opera House this fall. But first, the University of Minnesota alumnus stops off for a recital at his alma mater before heading overseas. The program, fittingly, is entirely British, including Purcell, Quilter, Finzi, Weir and Musgrave. Terry will be accompanied by Source Song Festival artistic director Mark Bilyeu.
