Talented musicians from Mount Isa School of the Air have jetted off to Brisbane to fulfill their musical dreams.
The trip is in partnership with schools across Queensland and called the State Honours Ensemble Program (SHEP) which begins on Saturday November 30.
The program connects the finest young musicians with a team of eminent international and national conductors in a pursuit of musical excellence.
Instrumental music teacher for the Mount Isa district School of Air Cara Taggart said the three-night trip will be a great experience for the students.
"It's a fun program and all the kids have been practicing a lot," Ms Taggart said.
"On Saturday they rehearse all day and then on Sunday they perform a concert."
Young students Emma Locke and Olivia Hawkins said they were excited.
"I can't wait to play with a big orchestra and in front of a big crowd, its my first time," Olivia said.
"I have been playing violin for three years and I am excited to play in an orchestra," Emma said.
Regional coordinator for Apex John Davis said the Apex foundation got in touch with the School of the Air after the floods to see if they could help.
"Apex has donated a lot of money to help the kids go on this trip,we are hoping we can make this annual thing," Mr Davis said.
