Alberto Mizrahi, one of today’s most prominent interpreters of the Hebrew liturgy as well as a versatile stage performer, is among the very few American cantors at home in both cantorial art and the classical secular repertoire. Born in Greece to a Sephardi family that emigrated soon afterward to the United States, Mizrahi has also distinguished himself as an exponent of the Ashkenazi cantorial tradition. He is a graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary’s Cantors Institute (now the H.L. Miller Cantorial School), where he studied with Hazzan David Kusevitsky and numerous other leading figures in Jewish music. After firmly establishing an international reputation, he became a protégé of the legendary cantor Moshe Ganchoff, from whom he received much of the transmitted tradition.

In addition to serving prestigious American congregations, Mizrahi has appeared as a guest cantor throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. His extensive list of appearances includes a concert at the Capitol Rotunda in Washington and at Auschwitz liberation commemorations in Hanover and Hamburg. He has also made numerous recordings, including The Voice of a People; Die Stimme der Synagoge; Chants Mystigues; and Songs for Jerusalem.
