The members of the groundbreaking, category-shattering trio Time for Three describe themselves as “the world’s first classically-trained garage band.” Under the direction of Boston Pops’ Chief Conductor Keith Lockhart and with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, they give the Melbourne premiere of a concerto written for them by Chris Brubeck (son of jazz legend Dave Brubeck), which combines classical elements with jazz, bluegrass and more – with thrilling results.
