Serkan Çağri is one of the most popular and highly-regarded clarinetists in Turkey today. He is joined by a seven-member band, and together, they create upbeat folk music that explores the rhythm of the Balkans and the pulse of the Mediterranean.

Çağri began playing the clarinet at the age of seven. After winning special recognition in a prestigious national clarinet competition in his early teens, he honed his craft in Turkey’s finest music conservatories. Since that time, Çağri has played solo, with bands and ensembles and with some of the world’s finest musicians. In addition, the world’s leading clarinet manufacturers commissioned him to redesign the pitch of the instrument, resulting in a new clarinet titled the “Serkan Çağri” model.

Today he is a popular composer and musical director for film and television. He also hosts his own music series on Turkish national television and is featured in the May 2013 episode of the PBS series Music Voyager.

Rarely has life been imitated with such precision or with such pathos. Joseph Cashore’s hand-built marionettes replicate stunning effects, like toes wiggling from the hole in a shoe and a mother holding her squirming newborn. Set to recorded music by Beethoven, Strauss and Copland, each scene is powerful, surprising and one-of-a-kind.

Each vignette is simple and yet, you forget the characters are fabrications, stitched together by a supremely gifted puppet-master. From the performance of the grand old violinist Maestro Zelinka to Johnny Lobotomy’s heavy metal rock guitar frets, each marionette offers a moment to be treasured.
