Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

Oran Etkin

Oran Etkin grew up playing jazz and began studying with George Garzone at age 14. He studied classical clarinet as an undergraduate and received a Masters in Jazz Performance at the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Dave Liebman and Dave Krakauer among others. His unique voice on the clarinets and saxophone has contributed to numerous Jazz, African, Klezmer, Brazilian, traditional New Orleans and Classical groups in the US and abroad.

Oran also leads a quintet with Jason Marsalis, Fabian Almazan, Garth Stevenson and Curtis Fowlkes....
