The music of Eastern Europe filled the Lemon Grove in downtown Youngstown Tuesday evening.
It was all part of Youngstown State University’s Slavic Students Associations Jam Session Fundraiser.
Guests were treated to traditional music from countries like Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia and many more. The Night Owl Tamburitza Orchestra made up of some Youngstown State University students led the evening filled with music and food.
The association formed last November in hopes of educating the community on their Slavic culture.
“We need to pass this culture along to future generations because we’re the ones who are going to carry it on and we need to keep it going and keep it alive in the Youngstown area,” said Amy Motika, Youngstown State University Slavic Students Association.
Proceeds from the event will fund future film screening, guest lectures and workshops.
