"There was nothing stilted about any of it; this was high-octane playing from first note to last."
--The Washington Post
Making its Fortas debut with a program that will be announced from the stage, the self-proclaimed world's first classically trained garage band, Time for Three defies traditional classification. Performing music from Bach and Brahms to their own arrangements of The Beatles, Katy Perry, Kanye West, and Justin Timberlake, they have performed everywhere from Wolf Trap with the National Symphony Orchestra to Carnegie Hall, jazz clubs, European festivals, NFL games, and the Indy 500. Their hit YouTube anti-bullying video Stronger, featured on CNN and the Huffington Post, has inspired students around the globe.
What started as a trio of musicians who played together for fun while students at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute for Music evolved into Time for Three, or Tf3 for short--a charismatic ensemble with a reputation for limitless enthusiasm and no musical boundaries. Violinists Zachary (Zach) DePue and Nick Kendall first discovered their mutual love of fiddling in the country western and bluegrass styles. Then bassist Ranaan Meyer introduced them to his deep roots in jazz and improvisation. After considerable experimentation, the three officially formed Tf3.
Performance Timing: Approximately 95 minutes, including one intermission.
