From Bucharest, the capitol of Romania, where he performed as a vocal soloist at the Operetta Theater for many years, to sun-splashed Ft. Lauderdale in South Florida, Eduard Ciobotaru has successfully balanced his life-roles as *educator--in 1999, he moved to the U.S. and secured a career position as a music teacher for Broward County Public Schools, the second largest public school system in Florida--and *composer-singer-musician. His newest CD release, Move To The Beat, is a musical gem that sparkles with positivity, energy, and sincerity. While most of the selections are exuberant in spirit, others are soulful...but all of the songs on this children / family album appeal not only to kids' sense of fun and love-of-learning, but explore a broad spectrum of important childhood emotions. Eduard Ciobotaru graduated from the Performance Arts Convervatory where he studied Opera, Broadway Musicals, and Operetta. He won First Place in a Broadway Musical competition--and for the primary TV station in Romania, he both composed and performed music. Presently, Eduard and his wife Cristina live with their sons David and Kevin in South Florida where they are all committed to their faith, finding it to be a genuine source of strength and comfort in their lives. .
