Give to the Cleveland Junior Tamburitzans

All of the families at Cleveland Junior Tamburitza would like to wish you a happy holiday season! It has definitely been a difficult year for everyone due to the virus and now we must slowly try to reconnect and rebuild.

We at CJT are very passionate about keeping our group strong and growing but we have had to make some sacrifices this year. We did not hold our annual raffle or yearly concert – which were two of our biggest fundraisers. It has been difficult to return to a normal practice schedule because of the virus and we want to keep our kids and families as safe as we can. At this point we have brought our intermediate and senior kids back for music lessons, we do not want them forgetting the beautiful songs they already know and we want to start to prepare for the year ahead. We hope that things get better and we can bring our beginners back for singing and dancing in the new year. We had one of the biggest Tamburitza groups in America and the best performers, we credit our fantastic teachers for all of the hard work they have done and continue to do!

Our goal is to rebuild and get back to becoming a strong vibrant group again! Tamburitza is a big part of our Croatian heritage. Through song, music, and dance the story of the Croatians is told and old history and traditions are not lost. Many have fought protecting our Croatian culture and it is our duty to carry it on. We would like to continue performing for picnics, weddings, festivals and highlight the Croatian Pride that CJT has been known for!

Thank you for always supporting our group in the past! Our community has kept us strong and growing for over 60 years and we could not do it without you! With the help of our donors, our young people will not forget who they are and where they came from. We are so passionate and committed to keeping the group strong and thriving and we will not let the downfalls of this year change that!
