Eighty-two years ago, the multicultural music and dance ensemble known as the Tamburitzans was formed in Austin, Texas. It soon moved to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa.; it’s now an independent group based in Pittsburgh.
Its members are students at Pittsburgh-area colleges and universities, who sing, dance and play musical instruments of different cultures, predominantly Eastern European ones, as the name suggests. Each year, they put together a brand-new show, which they take on the road.
Their shows features traditions of events such as festivals, weddings, anniversaries and rites of passage, celebrated by the people of Armenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Roma, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Ukraine. They’ve also been spreading their reach outside eastern Europe, adding cultural tradition from Cuba and Dominican Republic, and, for the first time this year, Scotland and Ireland
They return to the Breen Center for Performing Arts in Ohio City. Reserved seat tickets are $20.
