The Lopez concert of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival returns to Lopez Center, with the amazing jazzy and innovative trio, Time for Three-- and with them, the equally amazing Sempre Sisters!

Defying convention and boundaries, Time For Three stands at the busy intersection of Americana, modern pop, and classical music. To experience Time For Three (TF3) live is to hear the various eras, styles, and traditions of Western music fold in on themselves and emerge anew. Bonded by an uncommon blend of their instruments fused together with their voices, Charles Yang (violin, vocals), Nicolas “Nick” Kendall (violin, vocals), and Ranaan Meyer (double bass, vocals), have found a unique voice of expression to share with the world.

The Sempre Sisters, violinist Charlotte Marckx and cellist Olivia Marckx, is an award-winning classically trained sister duo that aims to create music not limited by genre. The sisters perform their own compositions and virtuosic arrangements of music in a variety of styles, from Bizet to The Beatles, Scottish Fiddle Tunes and Sinatra.

This Seattle area duo has been featured on NPR’s From the Top, Strings Magazine, and Classical KING FM 98.1, as well as at the Northwest Folklife Festival. They have received national and international acclaim, including being named a 2019 Davidson Foundation "Enormous Talent" Fellowship recipient and winning the 2018 Stulberg International String Competition Gold Medal and Bach Prize (Charlotte), as well as advancing to the semifinals at the 2021 Hudson Valley Philharmonic Competition and winning a prize at the 2016 YoungArts National Arts Competition (Olivia). They were grand prize winners of the KING FM Young Artists Awards and have performed with the Seattle Chamber Music Society and the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. The sisters have soloed with several orchestras individually and as a duo, including the Seattle Symphony, Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, Port Angeles Symphony, and Kalamazoo Symphony. They have also performed with Jon Kimura Parker, Chee-Yun Kim, Noah Bendix-Balgly, Time for Three, Pink Martini, and Mark and Maggie O’Connor. Olivia is currently studying orchestration with Tim Simonec, and Charlotte and Olivia are students at the prestigious Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles where they study with Robert Lipsett and Clive Greensmith.
