Tamburitzans get new executive director
Robin Rosemary Miller is the new executive director for the Tamburitzans, the board of directors for the cultural heritage dance group and musicians said in a statement Monday.
Miller was director of the Northside North Shore Chamber of Commerce for more than 18 years.
Miller said there are 29 dancers and musicians in the group this year.
“Most of the dancers are musicians. They are fantastic,” she said Monday.
The Tamburitzans will kickoff the summer programs with a full performance at Hartwood Acres in Indiana and Hampton townships at 7:30 p.m. June 9, weather permitting.
Also, the group will give an abbreviated performance at a fundraiser and networking event being held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. June 13 at the Teutonia Mannerchor, or German Club, at 857 Phineas St. in the North Side, Miller said.
Miller said the board is looking for a building to replace one near Duquesne University.
“We are talking with the university and we are also looking on the North Side,” Miller said.
