Time for Three to Perform at the Conference

Time for Three Stronger

The 2012 Conference Team is excited to announce very special guest performers for the 15th Biennial Conference, 40 and Forward.

Time for Three (Nicolas Kendall, Ranaan Meyer, Zachary DePue) will be the featured performers at the SAA conference on Sunday night, May 27, 2012.

Time for Three has roots in classical music, but explores myriad styles in a unique fusion of sounds. Their first music video, “Stronger,” debuted online in October 2011, bringing a positive anti-bullying message to thousands of viewers.

Nano and Mini Message proposals due November 15.

The call for papers for the 2012 Conference includes a trendy new format to add to the traditional methods used in the past. This new format offers many presenters the opportunity to contribute to cross-instrument sessions by limiting the length of an offering to time slots of 5 and 12 minutes.
