Aria-nominated and internationally regarded virtuoso indie quintet Topology will return to Bundaberg to perform WE WILL RISE on the back of their new album release.
The WE WILL RISE live performance is touring to nine regional Queensland towns and tickets are on sale now for the 19 November performance at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.
Percussionist Grant Collins will be a special guest for the Bundaberg performance.
Part performance, part conversation, join the principal artists of Topology for an evening of music designed to inspire community conversation, collective reflection and renewed strength.
WE WILL RISE is a live performance of Topology music curated from back catalogue signature compositions and a new composition Drought Stories Texas and reflects Topology artists’ contemporary concerns.
It highlights the strength and resilience of humankind, and through this popular artform, demonstrates music’s intrinsic power to inspire and heal.
“We are so happy to announce a live tour of WE WILL RISE, and particularly to regional rural communities who are bearing the brunt of economic and societal hardships brought about by climate disruption,” Creative Director and Topology virtuoso soloist Christa Powell (violin) said.
“Natural disasters like bushfires, floods, cyclones, drought and other traumatic events are extremely challenging for communities.
“Recovery takes time and cannot be done alone. Recovery is about community, strength and working together to rebuild.
“In WE WILL RISE, this assembly of tracks, both old and new, asserts our belief in optimism and the faith that we will pull through these times of crisis both individually, together and through the healing power of music.”
