Judy Bechar sings in six languages: Hebrew, English, French, Russian, Italian and Spanish. Her rich repertoire includes select songs from famous Broadway musicals (Cabaret, Westside Story, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, The Sounds of Music, etc.), and the favorite French chansons of Edith Piaf, Yves Montand, Jacques Brel, Gilbert Bécaud, etc. She also sings Spanish classics such as Besa me Mucho, Granada, Historia de un Amor, etc. Thanks to her amazing, rich and enchanting vocals, she drifts away towards the realm of the light opera, and performs select sections from La Traviata, Carmen, The Barber of Seville. Found in her repertoire are great and exciting renditions of sections such as Nessun Dorma and Time to Say Goodbye. She performed many times in Israeli TV and radio shows, and got crowned as the “Israeli Edith Piaf.” Judy is a tremendous performer, a “stage dweller” with an amazing tone of voice. She performs with a 60-player philharmonic orchestra and in smaller ensembles on demand. Judy’s greatest passion is to excite and reach every single person in the audience. She does that with tremendous professionalism and artistry, and the audience rewards her with love. She’ll be preforming at the Palladium in St. Pete in Jan. of 2020.

It was an old tie but a good one. Hairs from the yak head held against the wall still and solid. Its owner the reputable Mister Bailiwick admired the dead catawampus with a fierce grin as his gilded party operated without issue or complacency. He remembered the day well, how he plucked the creature’s life […]

Art Isn’t Easy

Considering I’ve been dealing with a lot in terms of stresses with work and finances, it has been rather joyous to be in the mindset of thinking about theatre again. Focusing on these particular songs from musicals has been a great way for me to pass the time while I have down time at work, […]

Sigrid's World

I cut my last post short as it had been neglected for a couple of days because I didn’t really know how to continue it. Sometimes I get a bout of inspiration for an hour or two and then it kisses me goodbye and leaves me feeling deflated and lonely. When I tried to continue […]
