Last night, 18 January 2008, IIUM Angklung Group, with the collaboration of Gamelan, Caklempong, Nasyid, Koir, Percussion, Zapin, Theatre groups and also musicians from Istana Budaya had performed for Islamic Performing Arts Concert 2008 (IPAC '08).
The Great Hall, Cultural Arts Centre was a full house with all the seats from below until the upper seats were filled with eager audiences, and they were excited as the concert started with its main show that night, a musical theatre 'ODYSSEY; A LEGACY'.

The musical theatre basically shows how International Islamic University Malaysia was built; how the idea was created by 'Che Det' and friends and how they struggle to make their dream come true.

And, after that, how Cultural and Arts Unit propose to succeed the program called 'IPAC', and how in the end the 'concert' succeeded.

Overall, it was not only the achievements of IIUM, but it was also about the Cultural and Arts Unit's success and dignity.

As for the performers, their hard work during trainings paid a lot last night, as the audiences were mesmerized by all the songs played during the musical theatre, thanks to the composer and music director of the show, cikgu Ku Zahir Ku Ahmad from Istana Budaya.
And to show appreciation to him, the crews of the program gave an appreciation calypso to him, without him knowing about it, at the very end of the show.

All in all, as for IAG itself, the show had gave them the opportunity to join such a big event for the year 2008.

Thanks for the commitment, and the experience of being as a part of the musical theatre will not be forgotten, Insya Allah.
