What do you get when you blend classical music artistry with a love of jazz, bluegrass, pop, and just about every other music genre you can imagine? You get the category-shattering trio Time for Three.
Time for Three had already made a name for themselves in the music world as a self-described "classically trained garage band" when they produced the music video "Stronger," demonstrating their commitment to bullying prevention. This artistic effort is evidence that as artists and as human beings, Zach De Pue, Nick Kendall, and Ranaan Meyer stand for making a difference in the world through their music. In the description of the video, they state, "We are Time for Three and this is our story -- the story of so many kids who every day face challenges to who they are and who they want to be: their dreams, their ambitions, their identity. This video is for you guys. Be strong. Stick with it. We did, and we are stronger for it."
The "Stronger" video was funded by fans through Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects. Read about some of the inspiring projects and ideas at www.kickstarter.com.
Time for Three violinist Nick Kendall has been (and will be again) a soloist with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra on the Sangamon Auditorium stage, but this Saturday's concert by Time for Three will be in the intimate Studio Theatre as part of the UIS Kitchen Sink series. With a commitment to showcasing a broad range of skilled and eclectic artists, the Kitchen Sink series provides a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some outstanding artists. We certainly look forward to Time for Three on Saturday evening.
