The Duquesne University Tamburitzans have graced the Civic Music stage several times over the years, most recently in 2004. In every show, audiences enjoy an unforgettable experience. Spectacular dance, brilliant costuming and youthful exuberance light up the stage as this high-energy troupe interprets the irresistible folk music of Eastern Europe. They take their name from the tamburitza – the family of traditional stringed instruments that gives this music its distinctive sound.
