Resound Bush Fire appeal

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

The Music Council of Australia “Resound” program, in partnership with the Dandenong Ranges Music Council, is organising donations of musical instruments to musicians of all ages and ability who have lost instruments in the recent Victorian bushfires. We have received many offers of instruments but want to make sure that real need is met with good quality instruments, suited to the musicians who will be using them.

To fill the need satisfactorily, an application form has been set up for those needing their musical instrument/s replaced. The form is only accessible through this emailed link. Whether the lost instrument was a $30 uke or a violin worth thousands, we know how important it is to get people playing again quickly, so this is an appeal designed to match ALL needs, great and small.

If you have lost a musical instrument due to the fires, please click HERE to fill out the form. If you know of someone who has been affected in this way, please forward this email to them so that they can access the form. All applications will be considered and we intend to start replacing instruments as soon as possible. If you know of someone interested, or if you are interested in donating an instrument, please don’t hesitate to contact Rachel Hocking at: [email protected]
