(Tf3) is a masterful trio that defies traditional classification. NBC describes their latest recording project as “glowing… very hot… marked by great intensity of feeling… impassioned.” Featuring Zach De Pue and Nick Kendall, both on violin, and Ranaan Meyer on bass, Tf3 performs music from Bach and Brahms, to their own arrangements of The Beatles, Katy Perry, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake. They appear everywhere, from Carnegie Hall to Jazz Clubs, European festivals, NFL games and the Indy 500. And now, they mix it up at Festival Miami in a masterful musical fusion, co-hosted by Universal Music U @ Frost. It’s time to experience a new kind of concert—it’s Time for Three!

Three former Curtis students have been winning over audiences with their chemistry, virtuosity, and ability to think outside the classical music box for over a decade. Zach De Pue and Nick Kendall play violin; Ranaan Meyer plays double bass. Philadelphia composer Jennifer Higdon composed Concerto 4-3 with in mind. WRTI’s Meridee Duddleston spoke with Meyer last November when the trio was in Utah to perform at a benefit for the Utah Symphony.
