Ustad Azizul Islam on flute enthrals audience

Music aficionados of the port city enjoyed an evening of enthralling classical music on flute, on Thursday. Six Rotary Clubs of Chittagong jointly organised the music evening titled “Rotary Cultural Programme-2014”, featuring solo flute recital of Ustad Azizul Islam at the auditorium of Institute of Engineers Bangladesh (IEB), Chittagong.
