The groundbreaking, 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 members Nicolas (Nick) Kendall, violin; Charles Yang, violin; and Ranaan Meyer, double bass carry a passion for improvisation, composition, and arrangements, all prime elements of the ensembles playing.
Tf3s high-energy performances are free of conventional practices, drawing instead from the members unique musical backgrounds. The trio also performs its own arrangements of traditional repertoire and Ranaan Meyer provides original compositions to complement the trios offerings.
To date, the group has performed hundreds of engagements as diverse as its music: from featured guest soloists on the Philadelphia Orchestras subscription series, to Club Yoshis in San Francisco, to residencies at the Kennedy Center. Recent Highlights include Carnegie Hall, appearances with the Boston Pops, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, sold-out concerts with the Czech Philharmonic and BBC Proms, and an appearance on the ABC prime time hit show Dancing with the Stars.
