Time For Three joins the Seattle Symphony for an unforgettable evening of music. Defying convention and boundaries, Time For Three stands at the busy intersection of Americana, modern pop and classical music. To experience Time For Three (TF3) live is to hear the various eras, styles and traditions of Western music fold in on themselves and emerge anew. Bonded by an uncommon blend of their instruments fused together with their voices, Charles Yang (violin, vocals), Nicolas “Nick” Kendall (violin, vocals) and Ranaan Meyer (double bass, vocals) have found a unique voice of expression to share with the world.
Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony and winner of the Solti Foundation U.S. Career Assistance Award in 2014, 2017 and 2019, Lee Mills is internationally recognized as a passionate, multifaceted and energetic conductor. In his previous position as Resident Conductor of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, he led performances hailed as having a “sonority of unequalled liveliness and quality” (movimento.com), working alongside such artists as Simone Porter, Conrad Tao, Eliane Coelho and the Smetana Trio.
Earning praise from NPR, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, Time For Three is renowned for their charismatic and energetic performances in venues including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and The Royal Albert Hall.
