BNU students had a time of their life at the music workshop by US based band Grace McLean and Them Apples. The workshop was organized by Directorate of Student Affairs & External Relations (DSAER) under the aegis of the BNU Music Society. The workshop was sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with support from the Consulate General of the United States of America, Lahore. Grace McLean was accompanied by Justin Goldner who is a bassist in the group.
The workshop consisted of several interactive segments including Grace’s solo performance, group performance, and a jam session with BNU students. The band also had an interesting discussion with students about music, art, culture, and studies. At the end of the session, Director DSAER, Mr. Zaeem Yaqoob Khan thanked the guests and presented them souvenirs which were made exclusively by students of Department of Jewellery & Accessory Design, SVAD.
