Although you don't indicate what your CD4 count is currently and whether you would even be at risk for opportunistic infections. That said, once you start HIV meds and your virus gets under control your CD4 count will likely increase sufficiently that you will no longer be at risk. We have a couple of professional singers in our clinic on HIV meds who have done great and continue to perform.
