Time for three is all about that bass, and two violins.
Tuesday night, Time for Three string orchestra held a concert that fused classical music with a twist of contemporary. The trio, made of violinist Zach De Pue, double bassist Ranaan Meyer, and violinist Nick Kendall has performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to NFL games to the Indy 500.
Orchestra Director Stephanie Jones said she feels like guest orchestras leave a large impact on students, by providing a role model in character and provide inspiration to many.
“(Guests are) showing (students) beyond what it means to be a great musician, but what it means to work hard, and to do something you love,” Jones said. “I think its a great opportunity for students to come in touch with the outside world.”
Sophomore Quent Hartt said that Time for Three inspires him to think about what music has to offer in the future.
“I think that its a really neat concept because it adds more to what can happen if you proceed to orchestra outside of school,” Hartt said. “It can inspire me to further progress my skills in playing.”
Time for Three has visited over 1,000 schools, and left a similar impact on thousands of people across the globe.
“I hope that it makes a big impact,” Jones said. “I hope that the experiences that we offer last, and they are something that they remember and look back to inspire them. That’s really what we want to do — to reach the students and inspire them to another level.”
