Time for Three

String Trio

Ranaan Meyer, Double Bass
Nick Kendall, Violin
Charles Yang, Violin

Time for Three (Tf3) transcends traditional classification, with high-energy performances free of conventional practices. Drawing from the members’ differing musical backgrounds, the trio performs its own arrangements of traditional repertoire with elements of classical, country western, gypsy and jazz idioms forming a blend all its own. The members — Nicolas (Nick) Kendall, violin; Charles Yang violin; and Ranaan Meyer, double bass — carry a passion for improvisation, composing and arranging, all prime elements of the ensemble’s playing. The ensemble has further expanded its unique repertoire for symphony orchestras through commissioning programs for new works. These include Concerto 4-3, written by Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Jennifer Higdon, Travels in Time for Three by Chris Brubeck in 2010, and Games and Challenges by William Bolcom. Their latest project, a three-year residency with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, includes commissions for three new works. To date, the group has performed hundreds of engagements, from sell-out concerts at the 2014 BBC Proms, to Christoph Eschenbach’s birthday concert to residencies at the Kennedy Center and Sun Valley Summer Symphony to name a few. TV performances include appearing on ABC’s Dancing with The Stars, and an Emmy-winning show Time for Three in Concert premiered by PBS.
