The internationally famous Duquesne University Tamburitzans perform two concerts in Lake Nebagamon next week.
Performances begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the historic Lake Nebagamon Auditorium.
The “Tammies” have been performing in Lake Nebagamon every year for more than 60 years and their appearance here has a unique face-to-face aspect not present in larger halls, said Rick Baga, president of the Nebagamon Community Association, sponsor of the event.
Throughout the decades, this outstanding group of entertainers has presented thousands of shows throughout the United States and Canada, and has also achieved international acclaim in countries from South America to Europe.
The name of the group comes from the stringed instruments which the Tamburitizans play. The “Tammies” use over 500 costumes, works of art as diverse as the countries, regions and nationalities they represent.
For more than 50 years, the “Tammies” conducted their summer training camp in Lake Nebagamon and the community, the performers and their leaders still maintain a sentimental attachment. The tradition of tossing freshmen in the lake as an initiation rite is still enjoyed.
There are no reserved seats. Tickets are $20 per person and may be reserved, Call Swan Dawson at (715) 374-3101, weekdays or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doors open at 6 pm.
