Through dance, music and songs, the Tamburitzans—all full-time students at Duquesne University— will capture the indomitable spirit of Eastern Europe and neighboring cultures. Language is no barrier, as these performances strike a universal emotional chord: joy at a wedding, sorrow over lost love and pride over a plentiful harvest.
“This critically-acclaimed show is a treasure trove of dance, style and enthralling musical talent,” said Susan Agin, Executive and Artistic Director, QPAC. “Some 400 magnificent costumes adorn the performers who embark on a journey, bringing to American theatre the magic of places which most people have only read about, or heard in stories about the “Old Country.”
Don’t let the high costs of shows in Manhattan, plus the cost of parking your car; stop you from seeing quality entertainment. QPAC’s excellent location, diverse schedule of events, reasonable ticket prices, free parking, beautiful theatre, infrared listening devices and exceptional service make it an excellent choice for a memorable outing.
Distinguished artists who have performed throughout the decades at QPAC include jazz legend Thelonius Monk; renowned dance choreographer Merce Cunningham; 60’s folksinger Judy Collins; and more recently Joan Rivers, Joel Grey, Robert Klein, Tommy Tune, Chita Rivera, Marvin Hamlisch, Mandy Patinkin, Dionne Warwick, Tony Orlando, Ben Vereen, Keith David, Andre De Shields, and Norm Lewis.
