Time for Three

Time for Three is a genre-traversing string trio that blends classical music, bluegrass, jazz, and other musical styles.

The founding members of the band––Nick Kendall, Zachary DePue, and Ranaan Meyer––met while students at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and began performing for the public in 2003. They recorded two self-produced albums before releasing their record label debut 3 Fervent Travelers in 2010. Their eponymous fourth album (2014) featured guest performances by folk musicians Joshua Radin and Lily & Madeleine, jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis, and others.

From 2009 to 2019, the trio performed as artists-in-residence with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Founding member DePue left the group in 2015 to focus on his work as concertmaster of that orchestra. He was replaced by acclaimed improvisational violinist Charles Yang, a graduate of the Juilliard School. The group composed and recorded the music to the motion picture Land (2021) by director Robin Wright.
