Emmy Award-winning trio to perform at Lake George Music Festival

lake george music festival The Lake George Musical Festival announces the Emmy Award-winning trio Time For Three (Tf3) will be in residence and perform with the Lake George Music Festival Orchestra at Lake George’s Shepard Park Amphitheater on Wednesday evening, August 10 at 7:30 pm. This event is free to the public.

This event serves as the opening night for the world-class Lake George Music Festival’s 2022 Season and is presented in Partnership with Lake George Arts Project as part of their 2022 Summer Concert Series.

Bonded by an uncommon blend of instruments and vocals, Tf3’s Charles Yang (violin), Nick Kendall (violin), and Ranaan Meyer (double bass) have found a unique voice of expression. The groundbreaking trio transcends traditional classification, forming a blend all its own with elements of classical, country western, gypsy, and jazz idioms. The members carry a passion for improvisation, composition, and arrangements, all prime elements of the ensemble’s playing. Earning praise from NPR, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Sun-Times, the band has become known for its charismatic and energetic performances.

Tf3 has collaborated with artists as diverse as Ben Folds, Branford Marsalis, Joshua Bell, Aoifee O’Donovan, Natasha Bedingfield, and Arlo Guthrie. They have premiered original works written for the band-from composers Chris Brubeck and Pulitizer Prize-winners Jennifer Higdon and William Bolcom. To date, the group has performed hundreds of engagements as diverse as its music: from featured guest soloists on the Philadelphia Orchestra’s subscription series, to Club Yoshi’s in San Francisco, to residencies at the Kennedy Center, to Christoph Eschenbach’s birthday concert at the Schleswig-Holstein Festival in Germany. Recent Highlights include Carnegie Hall, appearances with the Boston Pops, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, sold-out concerts with the Czech Philharmonic and BBC Proms, and an appearance on the ABC prime-time hit show “Dancing with the Stars.”  Tf3.com

In 2020, the band partnered with cellist and composer Ben Sollee to create the soundtrack to the new Focus Features’ film Land, starring and directed by Robin Wright. The film opened in theaters on Feb. 12.

The Tf3 event is free and open to the public. Please bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating.
