Beginning with the Fall of 1999, the Citizens’ Society has brought several performing groups from Lithuania to Pittsburgh to share their ethnic musical traditions.  The groups have included: Saule from Siauliai University (visited Pittsburgh 2 different years), Sutaras, the children’s choral group Rokoko, and Aitvaras.   Recent entertainment for our 100th Anniversary Celebration was provided by the Lithuanian ethnic ensemble Biru Bar from Indianapolis.
