A Project Tf3 Encore Weekend
Time for Three Returns for Special Concert January 8, 2018
By popular demand, the genre-defying trio Time for Three returns to perform a free concert Monday, January 8 at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood, 100 Saddle Rd., Ketchum. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. The concert begins at 6:30 p.m.
The special winter appearance and concert is part of a celebration of the group’s partnership with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony through their three-year Project Tf3 residency, completed in summer 2017. Congruent with the core purpose of Project Tf3, “Project Tf3 Encore Weekend” sees the group participating in community events, education and mentorship and musical performance.
Time for Three transcends traditional classification with elements of classical, country, western, gypsy and jazz idioms that form a blend all its own. Violinists Nicolas (Nick) Kendall and Charles Yang and double-bass player Ranaan Meyer share a passion for improvising, composing, arranging and educating. The group has performed the last five summers in Sun Valley during the Symphony’s season. Most recently, the group’s 2017 summer performance on August 3 unveiled “Songs of Joy,” commissioned by the Sun Valley Summer Symphony through its Project Tf3. The concert attracted an audience of more than 6,000 to the Sun Valley Pavilion, and Tf3 has continued to perform the new work in concerts worldwide.
The upcoming public concert at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood serves as the culminating highlight of the weekend’s celebration and will spotlight the group’s work mentoring the Harriman Quartet. Comprised of four local high school seniors, Arika Gourley, Jorgen Lawrence, Thalia Rojas and Lance Verst, the quartet has studied with Time for Three since their freshman year through the Symphony’s year-round School of Music, located at the Community Campus in Hailey.
“When we said goodbye to Nick, Ranaan, and Charles at the end of their time with us last summer, I think we all knew that it really wasn’t goodbye” said School of Music Education Artistic Director R.L. Rowsey. “We were committed to keeping Time for Three connected to the Harriman Quartet in their senior year. Now here they are for a weekend of intense work with these great high school seniors which will culminate in a shared moment on the stage. We are grateful to the Symphony supporters who make these kinds of connections possible in our community.”
Seating is open, and space is limited. Overflow seating with live simulcast will be available. Individuals unable to attend the January 8 concert in person will be able to watch via online livestream on the Symphony’s website at www.svsummersymphony.org/special-events.
