Time for Three will find out on Feb. 5 whether their album “Letters for the Future” wins a Grammy.

The trio that is so familiar to Sun Valley is up for a Grammy in the Best Classical Instrumental Solo category and Best Contemporary Classical Composition for their performance of Kevin Puts’ “Contact” with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Sun Valley audiences may remember that they performed the other worldly concerto with the Sun Valley Music Festival this past summer, evoking the idea of making contact with alien civilizations millions of light years from Earth.

But, even as they awaited the Grammys, the classically trained, genre-crossing string trio performed for two audiences at The Argyros this past week.

And they made a surprise appearance the next day, as violinist Charles Yang sang a soulful rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” to usher in “Rolling Stone” magazine’s Jann Wenner as he prepared to talk about his autobiography by the same title to a full house at The Argyros.

Nick Kendall, Charles Yang and Ranaan Meyer have performed at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and the Royal Albert Hall. This is the third time they have collaborated with The Argyros.

Bathed in blues and purples, the trio who have called Sun Valley their second home since taking part in a three-year residency with the Sun Valley Music Festival performed in the round at The Argyros with a sell-out audience seated around them.

They treated the audience to a world premiere of a song written with their Sun Valley friends in mind.

“We’re inspired to be in such a magical place,” violinist Nick Kendall told the audience. “You guys have always supported us and believed in what we’re doing.”

Ranaan Meyer sawed out the theme to “Jaws” on his bass. Yang, who added a vocal component to the group when he joined them, showed how long he could hold a note.

And, as always, the three performed with unbridled energy a musical menu that threw a little pop, a little bluegrass, a little classical at the audience.

And then, just like that, the concert ended. But not without them reprising “Stand By Me,” which they had played to great applause with the Sun Valley Music Festival orchestra the first year they performed in Sun Valley years ago.

“It’s easy to come back because you support us,” said Meyer.
