Croatoan welcomes you to the 2023/2024 season! We are excited to once again play tambura and dance kolo together.

This page includes registration details, eligibility, participant expectations, and the registration form.


Basic Info


Registration for the 2023/2024 season opens on August 8, 2023, for both kolo and tambura. The deadline for registrations is September 4, 2024. Registrations can be made online or in-person on Sunday, September 3 at 12:00pm at the St. Leopold Mandić Parish Hall (170 Hinchey Ave.)

Registration opens Tuesday, August 8 and runs until Monday, September 4.
At this time, registration is available for in-person kolo and tambura classes for all ages.

You may notice that the registration period begins and ends earlier than in previous years. This is so we know the sizes and composition of the performing groups in advance of the first class.


We encourage everyone to register as soon as possible, even if you are unsure. This helps us determine interest and make the necessary preparations for a prompt start to the season.
