report: Opening Ceremony of MASUM '07

Date: 3rd March 2007, Saturday
Venue: Main Hall CAC, IIUM
Time: +8.00 p.m
Playlists: Lenggang Kangkung and Wau Bulan
3rd March 2007- IAC team accompanying Gamelan group performed medley of Lenggang Kangkung and Wau Bulan for Opening Ceremony of MASUM, Majlis Sukan Antara Universiti Malaysia. IIUM is the host of the big event.
Conducted by Cikgu Ku Zahir, the night started by the sounds of percussion, and then Cak Doh Gong by Gamelan team. After that, Caklempong took place before Zapin team performed. Only after Zapin Angklung Team headed to the stage.
Probably that was the first time the team had 8 pages of music notes in front of them, so they had to make sure that it is well-prepared from page one until page 8. Plus, accompanying Gamelan for both songs was enjoyable, yet to catch up the speed was one challenge, but after plenty of trainings nights before that day, the team were able to play the songs well.
This is the last show for this semester. Since final examination is around the corner I would like to use this opportunity to wish you all the best and good luck to Kak Zakiah and Kak Zarith who will be leaving IIUM and Angklung Club this semester. Thank you for your commitment for this club and do not forget IAC team, ya!!
