Time for Three Product Description
Founded in 1999 by three Curtis Institute of Music students intent on exploring repertoire that stretches far beyond the limits of convention, TIME FOR THREE burst onto the scene in July 2003, following a lightening-induced power failure at Philadelphia's Mann Center for the Performance Arts. Prompted by fellow orchestra members to entertain the audience while technicians attempted to restore onstage lighting, Ranaan Meyer and Zachary DePue obliged with an enthusiastically received impromptu jam session that included works as far afield from the originally scheduled Beethoven symphony as "Jerusalem's Ridge," "Ragtime Annie," and "The Orange Blossom Special."
Since this auspicious debut, the trio - made up of double bassist Ranaan Meyer and violinists Zachary DePue and Nicolas Kendall - has continued to dazzle audiences with its eclectic mix of bluegrass, Hungarian gypsy, jazz, country-western fiddling, classical, and improvisatory music.
TIME FOR THREE sets itself apart not only with its varied repertoire but also with the approach which it presents its music: "blurr(ing) genres," writes David Patrick Stearns of The Philadelphia Inquirer, ultimately "creating different dialects," according to bassist Ranaan Meyer. The trio performs its own arrangements of traditional repertoire and Mr. Meyer provides original compositions to further complement the trio's musical offerings.
To date, the group has performed over two hundred engagements in venues as diverse as its music, including their official debut as featured guest soloists with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Music Center, opening for k.d. lang at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center, performing at the Endless Mountains Arts Series Festival, the Grand Teton Music Festival, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Cerritos Center in Los Angeles, Joanne Woodward's Westport Playhouse, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Chicago's Music in the Loft, and in such distinguished venues as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, the 92nd Street Y in New York, and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. ...See Full Description
