Inspiring students of all ages, Time for Three will present a workshop or the Punahou Music School Suzuki Program. Time for Three, the self-described “classically-trained
garage band,” will visit Punahou as  artists-in-residence September 26 and 28. The trio performs music from Bach to Brahms and beyond, including originals from their own arrangements of everything from bluegrass and folk tunes to ingenious mash-ups of popular hits.

from NPR:

“A lot of people ask me, ‘What is your goal now that you have done everything?’ And I always say that my goal is to not be bored by what I do,” Perlman says. “The only way that I cannot be bored by what I do

is if I play something and it’s all new to me.”
