On September 5, 2014, Duquesne announced: The Duquesne University Tamburitzans folk music and dance ensemble 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.
Since that date, progress has been made but there is much more to do. The purpose of this report is to provide an update to our constituencies: Tamburitzan alumni and friends. Hopefully this information will provide a context for this change and update you on our approach, the critical initiatives being undertaken under the leadership of the TEC and support of Duquesne University, the status to date and our challenges going forward.
