During the early years of Sarah’s career Sarah devoted a large amount of her time developing classical and filmic music. Pathing her way in the classical crossover world with a vision to change the way classical music is perceived. Bringing instrumental music to those who may not have heard live music before. This started with her band VISION, Sarah was commissioned by Classic FM and Yamaha to produce the show for their education show. Sarah then went on to create classical crossover group Sahara, inspired by the traditional string quartet, replacing the lead violin with saxophone. Combining beats and choreography within their full stage show. The release of their debut single Sahara Tango written and arranged by Sarah herself led Sahara to perform worldwide including sharing a stage with Peter Andre and Katherine Jenkins. Sarah developed this idea further by producing her own solo show with dancers, spreading her love for music and performing.
