Four years ago, in her mid-40s and with the oldest of her three children in 12th grade, New York-raised Adina Even Zohar started taking voice lessons. She soon came to the realization "that this was going to be a real change of profession and not a hobby," says Zohar, speaking from the Galilee home she has lived in for almost 30 years. About a year and a half later she started working with pianist/composer/arranger Giora Linenberg and produced her first show, Regards from New York. The show's program featured songs primarily from the 60's and 70's in a range of styles: light jazz, blues, pop and ballads, which, Zohar explained "were hits in New York in my childhood and teens." Lately, she has also started writing lyrics, and, realizing that all her lyrics had something to do with love - "whether looking for it, keeping it or losing it" - decided to build a program around that theme, Adina Sings Love. The program includes jazz standards she loves, contemporary songs and also her own original compositions. Zohar will be performing with her ensemble Tuesday at "Art Bar" Micro Brewery, Ein Hod, at 8 p.m. (no cover); Thursday at Tishbi Winery, Binyamina at 9:30 p.m. - reservations at (04) 628-8195; Saturday, August 25, at 9 p.m. at Barcarola Restaurant, Kfar Saba (09) 766-9606; and Friday, August 31, at 6 p.m. at Rosh Pina's Gan HaBaron outdoor music series - (04) 693-8990.
