Ensemble Bio:

Formed in 2016, ThreeForm is a new music trio that is committed to exploring the possibilities that arise when heavily infusing concert music with elements of jazz, improvisatory music, hip-hop, and other genres that are typically experienced outside of the concert halls.  Through experimentation and challenging traditions, ThreeForm aims to incorporate these musical elements in the modern concert experience. The ensemble‚Äôs name is a cleaver play on the word freeform, which accurately describes their unique musical aesthetic.

The members of Threeform (Robert Young, M. Maxwell Howard, Tim Sullivan) can all be described as hybrid musicians as they have professional experience playing a wide array of music. The agenda of ThreeForm is to craftily pull these influences into the listening experience.
