LINN-MAR High School Orchestra Calendar

Linn-Mar High School Orchestras with

Time for Three!




Please join us on Thursday, February 14th @ 8:00 p.m. at the LMHS Auditorium for a unique high school performance event! The LMHS Orchestras will be joined on stage with Time for Three (TF3) to present a joint performance utilzing music ranging from Bach to Guns n' Roses, the musical Hamilton to Czardes, the beautiful song Hallelujah, the fiddling favorite Orange Blossom Special, as well as original songs and compositions written by TF3. TF3 is an ensemble comprising violinist Nicolas (Nick) Kendall, violinist Charles Yang, and double-bassist Ranaan Meyer is a internationally known group that defies any traditional genre classification, happily and infectiously. With an uncommon mix of virtuosity and showmanship, the American trio performs music from Bach to Brahms and beyond, giving world-premieres by Pulitzer Prize-winners William Bolcom and Jennifer Higdon as well as playing originals and their own arrangements of everything from bluegrass and folk tunes to ingenious mash-ups of hits by the Beatles, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and more.

TICKETING INFORMATION: We will be using reserved seating for this event with tickets being sold online using a ticket purchasing website. Tickets will also be sold at the door, but we HIGHLY encourage you to purchase your tickets ahead of time to ensure you and your family have a seat.
