Bengal Classical Musical Festival to commemorate Syed Shamsul Haq


The fifth edition of Bengal Classical Musical Festival is all set to pay homage to the late veteran writer Syed Shamsul Haq.

Bengal Classical Musical Festival has posted a teaser picture on their official Facebook page.

The picture suggests that the festival is going to pay tribute to the prominent poet, who on this 27th September took his last breath after fighting a long battle with cancer.

Apparently, Square and BRAC Bank Ltd has returned as the principal sponsors for this year as well, alongside Maasranga Television as the broadcasting partner. Blues Communications is going to be the event organiser, with ICE Business Times acting as media partner.

Last year, the event was held from November 27 to December 1, 2015, at the Army Stadium in Dhaka. The upcoming concert will start towards the end of November this year, according to report.

To find out about this year’s schedule, you will have to keep an eye on their Facebook page and official website.
