Concert

“Christina Saffran uses her sparkling soprano with its deep, dangerously sexy undercurrent to spectacularly deliver.”

— Los Angeles Times

 

"Christina is a dream to work with — superb vocals, electrifying stage presence, the whole package.” 

— David Wiley, Music Director, Long Island Philharmonic

 

"Christina Saffran is the best that the musical theatre offers. 

A consummate performer blessed with a stunning voice and the most amazing gift of all. TALENT! To see her perform a soloist or in duets is getting the opportunity to see the best that Broadway has ever offered."

— Larry Blank, Tony Nominated Broadway Conductor /Orchestrator

 

“Electric best describes Christina Saffran with the Long Island Philharmonic and its capacity New Year’s Eve audience. The Orchestra served as a great anchor for Christina’s silky soprano, perfectly in balance from beginning to end. Every song proved to be a show stopper and the crowd left humming. A memorable New Year’s Eve all around!”

— Stephen Belth, Executive Director Long Island Philharmonic

"....a magnificent evening under the stars... gorgeous voice, stylish stage presence and a great flair for Broadway songs... marvelous - the complete package... audience response was enthusiastic and immediate, with thunderous applause...!”-  

— Paul Perry, Artistic Director, Music in the Mountains

 

“Tonight you can thank the gifted Christina Saffran. Her heartrending performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” was the evening’s highlight. The song used all her range. Her low range had rich colors, while her top notes were clear. Saffran sang buoyantly from MY FAIR LADY and carved the tunes in CHICAGO down to their bare bones with sass and attitude.”

— The Gazette, for West Virginia Symphony

Recent Show Reviews

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

“Christina Saffran… shows why musical theater, for all its glitter and glamour, is really about single moments, a singer taking a good song and making it soar.  Saffran’s romantic renditions kickstart the show into higher gear. She works her magic.”

— Seattle Times

WHITE CHRISTMAS

“As Betty, Christina Saffran was impressive and delightful. Ms. Saffran was breathtakingly beautiful (physically and vocally) in her cabaret club performance of Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me.”

— Aisle Say Seattle

 

“Christina Saffran shines as Betty Haynes in Irving Berlin's White Christmas at the 5th Avenue Theatre… a strong cast that will make you forget Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. They're all sensational, Saffran in particular.”

— Seattle Arts and Culture

 

“With Christina Saffran’s velvety voice, Betty Haynes percolates nicely. Saffran is a pro all the way, and can do no wrong in her vocals or dance moves.

— Talkin’ Broadway

I DO, I DO

“Christina Saffran is nothing short of wonderful as Agnes. Her singing voice is perfect for the role, and she can play delight, anger, despair, apprehension, love, and any number of other emotions as needed without overplaying any of them. This is the part in the review where the reviewer would give a specific example of a song that best showed her talent, but I would have to list everything that she sang in the show to do that. And, she can dance!
