The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra announced that it has created a new three-year residency program with the string trio Time for Three. The trio—violinist and ISO concertmaster Zach De Pue, violinist Nick Kendall, and double bassist Ranaan Meyer—began their residency on November 2 with a free concert at the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation entitled “Roots and Wings,” demonstrating Time For Three’s approach to adapting existing melodies by experimenting with songs from the Jewish tradition. The trio will perform concerts with the ISO in November 2009 and February and May of 2010; they also will appear at community events in Indianapolis and work with music students at Broad Ripple and Perry Meridian high schools in Indianapolis. This marks the first ISO residency for a group rather than a single performer; previous artist residencies included collaborations with baritone Nathan Berg and pianists Barry Douglas, Pascal Rogé, and André Watts. During the 2009-10 season, Time For Three will also perform with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony, and the Boston Pops; they make their Carnegie Hall debut on a family concert program in March 2010.
