New Future for the Tamburitzans
The Duquesne University Tamburitzans folk music and dance ensemble, known as "The Tammies," will become an independent, nonprofit organization over the next two to three years, and for the first time will audition students from other universities, as well as Duquesne. The move will help increase the ensemble's applicant pool, allow for a more robust performance schedule-thus more operating revenue-and position the group to more broadly pursue charitable support from individuals, the foundation community and government agencies.
