TIME FOR THREE
Time For Three performs Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts’ Contact, which was written for the ensemble and received two GRAMMY® Awards in 2023. Also on the program are lush orchestral suites drawn from ballets by Marin Goleminov and by Sergei Prokofiev.
“Puts’ concerto represents the ethereal nature of the greater beyond. This has been our journey, standing on the shoulders of tradition, but always leaping forward to discover new frontiers.” – Charles, Nick & Ranaan
Due to the length and type of performance, this concert is not suitable for children under the age of 5.
