Mount Isa's School of the Air musicians have returned from the performance of their lives.
The small group of six began their journey to Brisbane on Friday November 29 and returned on Monday December 2.
The trip was in partnership with schools across Queensland for the State Honours Ensemble Program which connects the finest young musicians with eminent national and international conductors in pursuit of musical excellence.
Instrumental music teacher for the Mount Isa SOTA Cara Taggart said the kids had many new experiences on the trip.
"On the Saturday morning the students walked into a room of about 1000 other kids and it was the most people they had ever seen in a room in their lives," Ms Taggart said.
"The students then rehearsed from 8am in the morning until 4pm in the afternoon with their tutors in their individual groups."
Ms Taggart said on the Saturday night they went to the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and afterwards they met some of the players.
"The kids asked them what is what like playing, I think they were very overwhelmed," she said.
"Then on the Sunday the kids finally got to perform to us which was absolutely amazing."
Young student Olivia Hawkins said the weekend was fun and challenging.
