Pianist/composer Richard Shulman has been expressing his unique blend of sacred and secular music through Jazz in his recordings, performances and compositions since 1983. He has recorded 25 of his own albums, available from RichHeart Music. He has performed at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Art Park, the United Nations, the Kool Jazz Festival, the Amenia Peace Festival and a wide variety of other venues throughout North America and in Europe.  In the Asheville NC area Shulman has written and produced the “Visions of Hope” Concert with members of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra and a theatrical musical titled “A Dream of Camelot.”

As a composer, Shulman has created over seventy-five pieces for jazz groups. Commissions include "May Peace Prevail on Earth" for singers, symphony orchestra, three choirs, and jazz quartet, created for the World Peace Prayer Society. An injury in 1977 led Shulman to begin exploring  healing aspects of music, and his studies in healing and meditation have informed his music ever since.
