Madeline Nickelson (Year 12) was very fortunate recently to be invited to tour North Queensland with the Queensland Youth Orchestra. Around 40 young musicians from QYO visited Bowen, Mackay, Nebo, Glenden, Moranbah, Ayr and Townsville over eight days. It was a very busy time. The orchestra provided casual educational concerts for school students, workshops for local musicians, and the orchestration for Graeme Connors at evening performances in Moranbah and Mackay.
Madeline, who received Honours in her recent AMEB Grade 5 Bassoon Exam, is very grateful for the opportunity to perform with such talented musicians.
