Mumbai: Parent’s Association Thalassemic Unit Trust (PATUT), which works to raise funds for treatment of children suffering from Thalassemia, has decided to organise its annual fundraiser virtually this year. The Ghazal Symphony will take place on Saturday November 21, at 8.30 pm and is being organised by Perfect Harmony Productions and Hungama, says a press release.
The concert which is being presented virtually for the music lovers was originally held in 2018 at Shanmukhananda hall, Mumbai, where Pankaj Udhas for the very first time had performed with the Symphony Orchestra. This recorded concert will showcase all his hit songs in his inimitable style with a grand symphony.
The concert will be presented online by Hungama. All proceeds in terms of donations will go to the charity to help the treatment of thalassemic children.
It is not a ticketed event and can be watched by all viewers across the world. Ketto will facilitate viewers to donate online to the charity directly.
Pankaj Udhas has been associated with the social field for more than three decades. He has been actively involved in charity and social work as the President of Parent’s Association Thalassemic Unit Trust (PATUT) Mumbai since 1987. PATUT was established on February 22, 1986 at St. George’s Hospital, Mumbai.
