Westmoreland Symphony presents Academy Concerts – Tamburaški Sastav Ponoć

February 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Croatian tambura band, Tamburaški Sastav Ponoć is made up of six musicians who play the Croatian family of instruments called tambura. These fretted string instruments played with a pick (similar to mandolins) were developed in Croatia in the mid-19th century. Earlier forms of lute-like instruments played solo, already existed in Croatia; the innovation was making them into a family of instruments, from high pitch to low, in imitation of the violin family. They were intended to play waltzes, polkas, and arrangements of classical music, but tamburas were quickly adopted by peasants and townspeople to play folk music and popular songs, and have become the musical “signature” of Croatian culture. The musicians of Ponoć are virtuoso instrumentalists and exciting singers and their energy is infectious. Free and open to the public, donations accepted

Concerts made possible by Michael J and Aimee Rusinko Kakos
