The category-shattering trio Time for Three (Tf3) transcends traditional classification, with elements of classical, country western, gypsy and jazz idioms forming a blend all its own. The standalone group’s members — violinists Nicolas Kendall and Charles Yang, and bassist Ranaan Meyer — carry a passion for improvisation, composing and arranging, all prime elements of the ensemble’s playing.
Tf3’s high-energy performances are free of conventional practices, drawing instead from the members’ diverse musical backgrounds. Audiences will be enchanted with the trio’s unique arrangements of traditional repertoire alongside Meyer’s groundbreaking original compositions to complement the trio’s offerings.
To date, the group has performed a wide range of engagements, including sold-out concerts at the BBC Proms, residencies at the Kennedy Center and Sun Valley Summer Symphony, and performing at the birthday party of Christoph Eschenbach, director of the National Symphony Orchestra. TV performances include ABC’s “Dancing with The Stars,” and an Emmy-winning show “Time for Three in Concert,” premiered by PBS.
