What: An Evening with Haroon Bacha (Dinner and Music)
When: Saturday, June 13, 2015 (tentative).
Where: Toronto/GTA (Hall: Coming soon)
Type: Family Event - by invitation only (depending on the size of the hall).
Cost: Sponsored and financed by guests
As some of you may be aware, we are thinking of inviting Haroon Bacha (a good friend and a legendary Pashto singer) to Toronto for a grand musical function.
Haroon Bacha is currently with Mashaal Pashto Radio in Czechoslovakia (Prague).
The ideal date, I was looking for the function, was after 'warokay akhther' and before 'ghat akhther'.
After discussing the matter with Haroon Bacha, he suggested a date somewhere around June 10. He is planning to visit US around this date for personal matters. Consequently, he could drop by at Toronto and spend sometime with us.
He also mentioned that due to his commitments with the radio station, it is hard for him to take time off frequently.
I checked the June 10th date. It is a Wednesday. We can have the function on the Saturday (June 13). However, it would be on the last weekend before Ramadan (around 17 June, Wednesday).
A grand musical function will be therefore challenging a few days before Ramadan.
Here are some options, I need your opinion on:
1. Have a smaller function (on Sat, June 13) with our invited friends only, and plan for a grand function later.
2. Go for the grand function now.
3. Postpone the function for now.
Your opinion is important in deciding this programme.
Thanks you for your time,
