Miss Nesrallah has performed for leading opera companies, symphonies, festivals and chamber music ensembles across Canada and the U.S., and around the world.

In 2015, Miss Nesrallah performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City and sang God Save the Queen for Will and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on their first visit to Canada on Parliament Hill in a performance that was viewed by millions. Miss Nesrallah was the sole vocalist in An Evening for Peace for Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan in Montreal.
Currently, Miss Nesrallah is the host of Tempo on CBC Music, Canada’s national classical music program, and is also the executive producer and star of Carmen on Tap, a company she created that performs Bizet’s opera Carmen as dinner theatre.
