Sana Liaquat declared 'Voice of QAU'
Islamabad: Sana Liaquat from Defence and Strategic Studies (DSS) Department was declared Voice of Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) in a singing competition held on Thursday night at the university campus.

Shahzad Sarfraz from Geophysics Department and Ms Maria from Psychology Department took the second and third positions respectively.

Debating Literary Society of QAU organised the event titled 'Melodious Night'. Seven students from different departments of the university participated in the Ghazals category and 10 in the songs category.

Being the first ever event of this kind in the university, there were some lapses in the arrangements such as shortage of space to accommodate the crowd but overall it was a well-organised event.

The jam-packed hall of the audience applauded the singers while some also accompanied them in singing. The students' performance was wonderful and one could hardly believe that they were singing live or it was as a recorded song.

The selection of songs by the singers was appreciable as they kept the audience swirling and waving to the tunes of melodies and applauding them.

Professional singers including Sultan Fateh Ali Khan, Jaam Amir and Noman Lashari were judges of the competition. They appreciated the singers and asked the organisers to continue such activities for highlighting the hidden talent of students.

QAU Vice Chancellor Muhammad Qasim Jan appreciated the efforts of the society for organising such a big event in a well-organised manner.

Next programme: Jan said that he never expected such a huge crowd would come to enjoy the musical night.

He said that the next melodious night for Voice of QAU would be organised in open-air theatre to accommodate maximum audience. "This time we granted Rs 40,000 for this event but next time this amount would be increased considerably," he said. Daily Times
