Performance by the Duquesne University Tamburitzans
September 18, 2010
On September 18, 2010 the renowned Duquesne University Tamburitzans performed, once again, for a recent IOCC benefit show at the Cornell School auditorium in suburban Pittsburgh. It seems quite fitting that both the IOCC and the Tamburitzans were born in Pittsburgh, a city reflecting a melting pot of eastern European culture, tradition and compassion. The event was sponsored by the IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee.
Committee Chairman, Nick Terezis, offered a few words to the audience on the critical mission of the IOCC prior to the start of the event. The two hour program included a wide selection of festive eastern European dances, songs and musical pieces. A special treat this year, was the on-site presence of the Little Athens Restaurant which offered selection of delectable Greek specialty food items for the audience during intermission and after the show.
The IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee thanks it key organizers of the event: Mary Ann and Kevin Renk, Sophie Farah, Vera Croitoru, Helene Emery, Nick Terezis, and Deno Pappas. Most importantly the committee thanks the patrons, Cornell School District and the Duquesne University Tamburitzans, especially their managing director Paul Stafura for their enthusiastic and generous support.
