Carole Terry’s career as an international performer and teacher of organ and harpsichord has taken her to many cities and universities throughout the United States, Europe, and the Far East. Especially known for her performances and recordings of German Romantic music, she is also an expert on the physiology of keyboard performance—a field in which she is preparing a major publication. A recent recording, Carole Terry in Schwerin, is a two-CD set of German-Romantic organ music recorded on the notable 1871 Ladegast organ at Schwerin Cathedral, Germany.
In the United States, Terry has participated in such conferences and seminars such as Westfield Center, the Historical Organ in America, the Oregon Bach Festival, the San Anselmo Organ Festival, and the Montreat Worship and Music Conference in North Carolina. In addition, she has been a featured recitalist at many conventions and conferences of the American Guild of Organists.
As Resident Organist and Curator for the Seattle Symphony from 2000 to 2003, Terry inaugurated the new C. B. Fisk organ in Seattle’s acclaimed Benaroya Hall, and played many solo concerts in addition to monumental works for organ and orchestra. Carole Terry is professor of organ and harpsichord at the University of Washington's School of Music, in Seattle.
