Apr. 5th - Concert: The Šarena Tamburitza Orchestra

The Šarena Tamburitza Orchestra comes to Oberlin as OCREECAS's Third Annual Artists in Residence. Šarena, known as one of the top tambura ensembles performing today and one of very few professional female bands, will perform a concert of traditional and popular music from Croatia, Serbia, and other parts of Southeastern Europe. The concert will include sets for both listening and dancing (OCREECAS Postdoctoral Fellow Ian MacMillen will teach and lead traditional circular Southeast European line dances). A discussion over pizza dinner with the members of the ensemble will precede the concert and will address the music's place in Southeastern Europe and among the diaspora in North America (the dinner discussion is free and open to the Oberlin community: 6 to 7:30 pm in the Conservatory's McGregor Skybar, located between the Kohl Building and the Central Unit).
