as far as I know the grand staff with just 2 clefs is used for piano. Are you sure the top trebel clef is not a soloist part, such as a vocalist or violin part?

I am pretty sure that Maintube is right.
The top line is the vocal melody. The bottom two lines of music, which are joined together by a bracket on the Left hand side, are the parts for the piano.

It may be too cramped to fit everything in one stave - I have played several piece of music that at some point or other breaks into three staves. John Ireland 'Island Spell' as does some Debussy.
