SINGER | TEACHER | WRITER | QUEEN
Internationally recognized vocalist, Regina Zona has maintained a highly diverse career for over three decades and there is no stopping her now!
As a classical singer, Regina has performed on opera and concert stages all over the world in a variety of repertoire from Mozart to Strauss. An avid recitalist, she specializes in the performance of American art song and has recorded three song cycles by Jake Heggie for the Naxos American Classics Label. Last year, she wrote and performed her first one-woman show to critical acclaim. And in 2019 she began a new chapter, entering the world of cabaret.
Regina is the 2020 MAC Award WINNER for Best NY Debut for her show, Becoming…the Queen 2.0!
A collaborative project to help artists who have been affected by covid-19
Artists are struggling because of the global pandemic and there is no end in sight to that struggle as performing arts organizations across the country have cancelled all remaining performances in 2020 and the restart in 2021 is uncertain.
I wanted to help in some way. So I started a GoFundMe to support three organizations who are championing artists in this difficult time. And as my gift and to get the word out, I am making music with several talented friends.
As her name suggests, Regina has been a Queen all her life and she has created two exciting projects celebrating her “ROYAL” standing – a one-woman show (written and performed in 2018) and a cabaret which debuted in 2019.
One Woman’s Self-Help Journey to Authenticity
In her first one-woman show, Regina explores her childhood through her parent’s divorce, her love of music and how that led to a bigger than life career, her relationship with an unlikely love, and discovering how to accept the woman she has become.
When One Coronation in a Lifetime is not Enough
In December 2019, Regina celebrated a BIG birthday and to mark the occasion in style, she presented her DEBUT CABARET. This epic show showcases every style from opera to broadway to jazz and takes the audience on a journey right through her big second act.
Performances in Rochester (NY), Norwalk (CT) and the main event at the Triad Theater in New York City occurred in 2019! And February 2020 she performed TWO ENCORE performances at the famous Laurie Beechman Theater.
AND Regina has WON the 2020 MAC Award for Best NY Debut Female!
Regina’s amazing music director is Jonathan K. Parks and her incredible director is the incomparable Lina Koutrakos. She also rocks out with her band, Sean Murphy on bass and Mike Lunoe on drums.
As a multi-hyphenate, Regina has several other successful projects and businesses.
