Kerry Bursey is a young tenor and multi-instrumentalist from Montreal, particularly active in the Early music scene throughout Canada. A herald of the lost art of self-accompaniment, he is one of the few to simultaneously sing and play early repertoire. He regularly sings with groups such as Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, Ensemble Caprice, Theatre of Early Music, Harmonie des Saisons, Arion Baroque Orchestra, Clavecins en Concert and Aureas Voces. He also sings with the choirs of Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, I Musici, les Grands Ballets and the Church of St. Andrew & St. Paul. He has participated in Tafelmusik's Baroque Summer Institute, and has studied and performed sacred cantatas of Bach in Germany and Italy at the renowned Bachakademie in Stuttgart and Bachkantatenakademie in Weimar. Kerry is a graduate of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in classical guitar and has performed as a soloist with the Orchestre symphonique des jeunes de Montréal (in which he played the viola for 2 years) and was a finalist at both the 2011 Grand Prix de guitare de Montréal and the Concours de musique de Sorel.
