National Epilepsy Centre arranged a fabulous musical night here at Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture (IVS) to raise funds for their cause, and paid tribute to the golden era of Pakistan’s film music in the process. The dinner was followed by live 15-piece orchestra performance which transported everyone into the past, with their wonderful ditties to the popular background scores of yesteryear. The singers bringing these memorable songs to life were Salman Alvi, Waseem Baig, Karam Abbas, Rosemary, Ashfaq Hussain and Wahab Khan. Halfway through the evening professor Emeritus, department of neurology and former director JPMC, Professor Hasan Aziz gave an introduction to NEC and the wonderful work it has been doing these past 12 years. A documentary was shown to highlight the work after which Dr Zarine Mogal gave a vote of thanks. The music programme then resumed, the evening ending with the announcement of door prizes and lucky dip draws. All in all it was a well-attended and successful event, the proceeds raised from the evening serving a noble cause.
