Performing professionally as a singer, songwriter, and pianist for over 40 years, Richard Kaplan is a cantor, teacher, and ethnomusicologist.

His extensive concert repertoire of Jewish World Music includes songs from Ashkenazic (European), Mizrachi (Middle Eastern), and Sephardic (Spanish/Andalusian) traditions, as well as original pieces, often based on ancient melodies and texts.

Richard tours nationally and internationally giving workshops where participants can experientially explore masterpieces of Jewish World Sacred Music. He has recorded three albums dedicated to Jewish traditions from throughout the Diaspora, Tuning The Soul (1999), Life of the Worlds (2003), and The Hidden One: Jewish Mystical Songs (2009), all of which showcase his magnificent high baritone voice and have sold in the thousands.
