Audition Oracle Review: Soprano Saira Luther
This weeks Audition Oracle testimonial comes from the beautiful Australian soprano Saira Luther.
I have been a member of Audition Oracle since November 2017 and it has been one of the best singing decisions I have made. Having grown up and studied in Australia, coming to London and having to make new contacts and finding auditions was sometimes challenging especially as this was combined with starting a family. However with Audition Oracle I have secured some great auditions and work including a call back audition for Phantom of the Opera in the West End to singing jobs in Mozart concerts, requiems and a TV commercial. It is a great resource and I am so happy to be a part of it.
