The young trio of Glen McDaniel, Zack Clark, and Nicholas Villalobos, together known as Simply Three, has garnered stirring success with their unique transforma tion of string music. With old school training but a new school sound, Simply Three is re-shaping convention with its original works and innovative arrangements that blend classical style with popular songs of today. Since its inception in 2010, the group has been praised as “having what it takes” (Boston Philharmonic) for its ability to impress audiences with a multitude of genres, being equally at home with performing works by composers such as Puccini and Gershwin to artists like Adele, Coldplay, and Michael Jackson. Simply Three continues to capture the true essence of the classical crossover field by combing their technical virtuosity and captivating musicality with an openness to genre hopping.

Simply Three will perform on May 13, 2017, at 7:30PM at the Orpheum Theatre. Click HERE to buy your tickets today!
