the first time at the annual All Pakistan Music Conference (APMC) to be held at
the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture on the 19th and 20th of this
Arshad Mehmood of Napa said that two students of the
academy - vocalist Nadir Abbas and instrumentalist Waqas Gulab - had been
selected to perform in the eighth All Pakistan Music Conference (APMC) ó an
event which focuses solely on classical music.
"The APMC is a good
platform for musicians and people interested in classical music. Also, it is a
great opportunity for the youngsters to lend an ear to this type of music." He
added that his institution had played a significant role in promoting the APMC
in the city.
A jubilant 23-year-old Nadir Abbas, who would be singing a
classical Raag at the conference, said he was very excited to be part of the
event. "When I first got to know that I would be performing, I was so excited
that I could not sleep for two nights."

Explaining the background of the conference, Arshad Mehmood said
that it was in 1962 that the conference was held for the first time in Lahore,

that APMC would be held in Karachi."

at the event along with other musicians such as Fahim Mazhad, Sajid Hussain,
