Via a two hour journey filled with color, sound and movement, the Duquesne University Tamburitzans capture the indomitable spirit of Eastern Europe and neighboring cultures through music, song and dance.
Language (a dozen or more are used) is no barrier, as these emotions strike a universal chord. Ensemble members come from all corners of the U.S., Canada, and the world, bringing exceptional talents and lifetimes of performing experience to the stage.
The Tammies are the longest-running multicultural song and dance company in the United States. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the company's thirty-plus members are full-time Duquesne University students who receive scholarships for their activities.
The Tamburitzans mission is twofold: first, to provide deserving students an education; second, to perpetuate the varying folk cultures and traditions of Eastern Europe.
