Time for Three play Transylvania U / The Rambler

Bookmark and Share

The string trio Time for Three (Violinist Charles Yang, double-bassist Ranaan Meyer and violinist Nick Kendall) brought high energy, lots of personality and a touch of sadness to their highly anticipated in Haggin auditorium concert on Tuesday evening. The group joked about their morose song choice before entering into a mashup of The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Mozart's "Lacrimosa," which unexpectedly segued into "Bittersweet Symphony." The group opened their show on an energetic note, though, with an original composition by the double-bassist Ranaan Meyer called "Ecuador." Since the piece was inspired by a trip to Ecuador, Meyer hinted that he should now write a piece called "Lexington," getting cheers from the crowd of students, professors, alumni and Lexington residents in Haggin.
