String trio makes UMS debut

ANN ARBOR — The University Musical Society presents the dynamic young string trio Time for Three in a unique chamber music concert at 4 p.m. Feb. 18 in Ann ArborÕs Rackham Auditorium. Comprised of violinists Zachary DePue and Nicolas Kendall and bassist Ranaan Meyer, the ensembleÕs repertoire spans genres as diverse as bluegrass, classical, Hungarian gypsy, jazz, country-western fiddling, and improvisatory music. The result is an eclectic and entertaining mix of music designed to dazzle audiences as diverse as their repertoire. In addition to their UMS appearance in February, Time for Three is participating in a residency at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance during the winter 2007 semester, working with U-M students and faculty during their visits.
Time for Three is increasingly gaining attention as one of AmericaÕs brightest, most unique ensembles. Founded in 2001 by three Curtis Institute of Music students intent on exploring repertoire that stretches far beyond the limits of convention, the ensemble burst onto the scene in July 2003, following a lightning-induced power failure at PhiladelphiaÕs Mann Center for the Performing Arts. Prompted by fellow orchestra members to entertain the audience while technicians attempted to restore onstage lighting, Meyer and DePue obliged with an enthusiastically received impromptu jam session that included works far afield from the originally scheduled symphony: ÒJerusalemÕs Ridge,Ó ÒRagtime Annie,Ó and ÒThe Orange Blossom Special.Ó
Since this auspicious debut, the trio has continued to dazzle audiences with its eclectic mix of bluegrass, Hungarian gypsy, jazz, country-western fiddling, classical and improvisatory music.
