Anita Singhvi has performed at several exclusive baithaks and gave a virtuoso solo performance at Ashoka Convention Hall before an audience of more than 500. She has performed to packed halls at India Habitat Centre and India International Centre. The walls of Neemrana Fort came alive with the sound of her music at a Ghazal evening organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). The historic Umaid Bhavan Place of Jodhpur, a masterpiece of contemporary Rajput architecture, reverberated with her spellbinding musical concert hosted by the Mehrangarh Trust, Jodhpur and Swar Sudha, Jodhpur.

More recently the Indian Cultural Heritage Society did her proud by inviting her to a solo performance at the India International Centre on Begum Akhthar’s 84th Birth Anniversary. Her repertoire of ghazals includes all-time greats like Ghalib, Faiz, Momin and Amir Khusro. The print and electronic media have lauded her style as reminiscent of “ The Great Begum” (Begum Akhtar), Iqbal Bano and Farida Khanum.
