Photo: Time for Three at Rackham Feb. 18

Time For Three performs at 4 p.m. Feb. 18 at Rackham Auditorium. Founded in 2001 by three Curtis Institute of Music students intent on exploring unconventional repertoire, the group first attracted attention during a lightning-induced power outage in Philadelphia that temporarily stopped a scheduled orchestra concert. The trio, comprised of two violins and double bass, gave an impromptu jam session that is said to have dazzled audiences with an eclectic mix of bluegrass, Hungarian gypsy, jazz, country-western fiddling, classical and improvisational music. Since then, the group has appeared in venues as diverse as its music, guest soloing with the Philadelphia Orchestra and opening for k.d. lang. Simon Rattle, the chief conductor and artistic director of the Berlin Philharmonic said of the group, "Simply put, they're a knockout."
