Oran Etkin is an internationally acclaimed jazz/world artist and composer. In Wake Up, Clarinet!, he turns the spotlight on his innovative Timbalooloo method for enriching the innate musicality of young children, conveying sophisticated concepts in a fun musical language that kids of all ages can understand. In the show, a clarinet arrives at a concert in bed. As the audience helps wake it up, it calls its mother, Big Mama Tuba. Mama comes out, and the fun begins!
Oran Etkin has performed around the world with musicians ranging from jazz guitarist Mike Stern to rapper Wyclef Jean. He brings this uniquely diverse perspective to his music for children, which incorporates rhythms and melodies from Africa, South America, Asia and Europe. He has performed Wake Up, Clarinet! at NYC's Central Park SummerStage and LA's Skirball Center. The CD won Parents' Choice, NAPPA, Oppenheim and IMA awards. Oran is featured on a Grammy-nominated CD too!

The Moscow Circus Joins Geodesic Management
October 14, 2011 by
We are thrilled to announce THE MOSCOW CIRCUS has joined the Geodesic family.
Since the reign of Catherine the Great, the circus has played an important role in the rich cultural traditions of Russia. In Russia, the circus is regarded as an art form on par with the ballet or opera, a showcase for highly skilled and creative artists. With its rich tradition and enviable reputation, the Moscow Russian Circus remains the standard by which others are judged. We are privileged to bring to you the opportunity to experience one of the jewels of Russia's impressive cultural heritage.
The Moscow Circus productions are shows for children and adults alike. The production is a dramatic tale told and based on a foundation of circus arts and famed performers of The Moscow Circus, in a Theatre-Circus format. Combined with Russian folk dancers, musicians, ornate costumes and backdrops, the show combines drama, cultural history and, most of all, the excitement and entertainment that can only be created by some of the greatest circus performers on Earth!
What Presenters are saying about THE MOSCOW CIRCUS:
"As you know the audience response buying tickets was so great that we added a second show which also sold out. We have received many compliments from our audience and look forward to the next time we can engage the Moscow Circus. Many thanks..."
Michael C. Wolf, Cerritos Center
"The cast and crew were great and easy to work with. I have had FABULOUS comments from teachers who brought their students to the school performances, both of which had been sold out since last August. Also, I want to thank you for the two in-school visits that you did. Those school visits were the highlight of the week for me."

A Moving Sound
May 11, 2009 by Dan
Lonely Planet, producer of travel guides and the television program "Six degrees" which is broadcast primarily by The Discovery Channel, came into Taipei 9 months ago to film an episode of their show. They chose AMS lead vocalist Mia Hsieh as one of the featured characters on the program and show her leading a workshop as well as performing with A Moving Sound in concert at Taipei's beautiful Red Theater. AMS is wonderfully presented in the show with music from the CD beautifully woven throughout the program. Lonely Planet projects that this episode will be seen by an estimated 500,000 viewers in up to 100 countries.
