American baritone Richard Zeller has consistently received high acclaim. For his portrayal of Scarpia, the Calgary Herald wrote “His performance was entirely authentic and wholly dominating”, and commended his “flawless vocal mastery.” A frequent performer on concert stages, Oregon Music News praised him as “a commanding presence housing a brilliant vocal instrument.”

In the 2017-18 season Richard Zeller is soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Grand Rapids Symphony. Recently he sang Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, Rossini’s Stabat Mater and the title role in Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Oregon Symphony Orchestra.
