Bio: Kerry Wilkerson’s solo career has taken him up and down the east coast performing renowned oratorios and exciting recitals. A resonant singer with unique evenness in register, the Washington Post has described him as an ‘exuberant’ performer having the ‘amber tone of a lyric baritone with the imposing weight demanded by Handel’s low-lying writing’. He has enjoyed a celebrated career as a member of the United States Army Chorus; singing and conducting for world leaders, Supreme Court Justices, politicians and dignitaries of many nations during official ceremony and protocol events.
In addition, Kerry has sung professionally with the US Air Force Singing Sergeants and the critically acclaimed Robert Shaw Festival Singers in many of the most prestigious concert halls throughout the United States and Canada. Kerry is well known to Washington, DC audiences through house concerts, solo recitals and regular guest appearances with choruses and orchestras such as the Handel Choir of Baltimore, the National Philharmonic Chorale and Orchestra, City Choir of Washington, Choralis, and the Oratorio Society of Virginia. Kerry's Carnegie Hall debut was made in June of 2017, as baritone soloist in Vaughan Williams' Sancta Civitas, presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY).
Kerry is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (B.M.) and George Mason University (M.A.).
