Having worked extensively in engagements that range from opera, small private gatherings, weddings and concerts to major public functions, Saira is an extremely versatile, graceful and professional performer.
She entertains her audience with ease whether she is floating through the Make a Wish audience singing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, performing ‘Ave Maria’ with a string quartet as a beautiful bride walks down the aisle or mixing opera arias such as ‘Oh Mio Babbino Caro’ with popular tunes such as ‘Time to Say Goodbye’ in a twenty minute performance for the Qantas Awards Evening.
Saira has completed a Masters in Opera at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and has performed on the Sydney Opera House stage with Opera Australia, the Concert Hall with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and at the Crown Casino Palladium Ballroom for many corporate and fundraising events. She is currently a Pacific Opera Young Artist, has worked with Victorian Opera and has performed in many Arts Festivals, weddings and concerts throughout Australia.
With her superb vocal talent and amazing stage presence, Saira performs a wide range of styles including opera, musical theatre, jazz and contemporary music. Depending on the occasion, Saira can perform with a string quartet, sing unaccompanied or with orchestral backing CDs. By utilising her extensive experience Saira is able to work with clients to ensure her performance is a perfect and memorable addition to their event.
Beautiful voice, you made my night!" HUGH JACKMAN, ACTOR
"Saira's gift is sublime, her voice can transport you." KERRY ARMSTRONG, ACTOR
“Saira lived absolutely up to my expectations, with an adorably arch Sofia. Coloratura for miles, beautifully even production, and, every now and then, crystalline high note which could bring tears to a girl's eyes. I like her more than ever”. SARAH NOBLE, REVIEWER FOR PRIMA LA MUSICA.
