What happens to violin, viola, cello, or double bass strings that are no longer used?
In some countries, due to lack of resources, musicians are forced to make their own strings in order to continue playing. They resort to making use of whatever is available, (for example a bicycle or telephone wire). At the same time, many strings are thrown away in other countries, meaning these resources go to waste.
Strings4all, run by Harmonic Progression, aims to help people and the planet simultaneously. If you love music and want to support and connect with musicians in need, we encourage you to take part by donating your strings or becoming a local coordinator for Strings 4all.
