Time for Three in Concert premiered March 2016
About the Program
Time for Three in Concert lets viewers experience classical music like never before. By blending familiar orchestral arrangements with other musical genres, the gifted trio, Time for Three, makes the symphony concert come to life.
Three talented musicians make up Time for Three — violinists Nick Kendall and Zach De Pue, and double-bassist Ranaan Meyer. They are classically trained yet enjoy performing and composing diverse styles of music. The trio met at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music where they discovered a mutual love for bluegrass and country traditions. After frequent jam sessions together, they took their unique sound one step further to create a symphonic rock group, Time for Three.
Through genre-bending collaborations “Time for Three in Concert” brings together diverse artists and unique arrangements to create a one-of-a-kind concert experience. Folk duo Lily and Madeline join the trio for a rendition of the Irish classic, Danny Boy, blending their voices into beautiful harmonies as only sisters can do. Singer-songwriter Joshua Radin also takes the stage and performs new symphonic arrangements of two of his most popular songs, What if You and Everything’ll be Alright. In the finale of the concert, beatboxer Tony Styxx adds hip-hop texture to the trio’s classical take on Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek.”
