Time for Three
(Nick Kendall, violin; Charles Yang, violin; Ranaan Meyer, bass)
Time for Three is a group that defies traditional genre classification. With an uncommon mix of virtuosity and showmanship, the American trio performs music from Bach to Brahms and beyond, giving world-premieres by Pulitzer Prize-winners William Bolcom and Jennifer Higdon as well as playing originals and their own arrangements of everything from bluegrass and folk tunes to ingenious mash-ups of hits by the Beatles, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and others. Time for Three—Tf3 for short—has performed in Carnegie Hall, in jazz clubs, at European festivals, at NFL games, and at the Indy 500. The group's YouTube bullying-prevention video, "Stronger," has inspired students across the globe, eliciting features on CNN and the Huffington Post. Ever since Tf3 members were fellow students at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music, they have wowed media and fellow artists with their charismatic musicianship. NPR said: "In person, the members of Time for Three come off as just three dudes in a band. But with their staggering technique and freewheeling genre-crossing, it's hard not to be swept up in the force of their contagious energy."
