Tamburitzans to Perform September 22

The Sugar Creek Tamburitans will be performing traditional Slavic and Croatian folk music at the Fall Concert at Wells Park, Sterling and Gill, at 4 p.m. on September 22.

   The Tamburitzans were formed in the late 1960s by Mattie Butkovich, Bob Pinter, and Barry Berislavich, to teach the children of Sugar Creek how to play the instruments and music of their ancestors in the Old Countries.  Over the last four decades the musical group has played in cities around the country including a performance in Washington, D. C., during the nation’s Bicentennial celebration in 1976.

   Several of the original members still perform with the group.
