Islamabad:23 May: The Westminster's School and College held a talent show at the Islamabad Club's auditorium here, says a press release.
The show opened to the packed auditorium with a drum and guitar performance by six-year-old grade-1 students Sinnan Salman and Salar Sarmad.
The talent show had many highlights with skits from Tom Sawyer to French poems presented beautifully by students. Some worth-mentioning performances were piano recital of Beethoven by Raiyan Chinoy, Punjabi song 'Akhian Nu Rain De' by Ansa Zahid, English song 'You are not Alone' by Seveinch, live 'Rabab' and 'Pashto' song 'Karaar' by Mustafa and Muhammad Bangash, mime performance by middle school students, 'Kathak' dance recital by grade four students, Metallica instrumental 'The Day that never Comes' played by Francesco and Usman and many more.
As per the school's norm, the show started on time. The entire show was well-rehearsed and timed. The show had nineteen performances in total, ranging from songs in Urdu, 'Punjabi English,' 'Pashto' to classical 'Kathak' dance recital. The two-and-a-half hours show was masterfully planned to keep the audience glued to their seats. "I have never enjoyed a talent show as much; there was not a single dull moment," says a parent.
Students were encouraged to participate in all aspects of the event, including performances, direction, hall management, sound, lights, props, backstage, costumes and makeup. The talent show in fact demonstrated the school's commitment to cultivating the students' demonstrative and creative skills along with cerebral development.
The director of the school, Raheel Sajjad Khan, congratulated students on their flawless feat and marvellous performance. The news.
