Topology Sources Instruments for Regional Kids

Topology Sources Instruments for Regional Kids
Claire Matthews

Call out for instruments! Do you have a spare violin or viola that is not being used to its full potential? You can help Topology and Texas State School start its first strings program!

The Regional Topology team are helping find more instruments for the kids of Texas Queensland. Topology know the value of music education and strive to develop stronger music programs for students in regional areas through their touring, workshops, bootcamps and more.

Topology is a Brisbane-based not for profit organisation, operating successfully for 23 years. Established in 1997, the ensemble lead musical creativity in Australia, are prolific creators of new original work, expert collaborators across genres and art forms and award-winning music educators.

Nominated for a 2014 ARIA Award for Best Classical Album (Share House), Topology has a well-established reputation for their signature work. The quintet experiments with surprising combinations of music genres, theatrical staging and cross art form collaborations to create exciting, thought-provoking music experiences for audiences of all ages, backgrounds and tastes. Resident Artist at Brisbane Powerhouse for 18 years, Topology has released 16 albums, produced countless evening-length works, presented an award-winning concert series, and toured extensively nationally and internationally.

Creative director Christa Powell said they would be most grateful for donations of violins or violas, provided they are in usable condition.

“If you have a 3/4 / full size violin, or 2×14″ / full size viola that’s looking for a new home the kids of Texas would be most grateful,” said Christa.

“Send an email with your details to and a member of the Topology team will be in contact to discuss your donation. But please, make sure they are in usable condition”.

So, if you have a spare instrument, donate it to support the kids of regional Queensland and give them the chance to learn music at school.
