BREMER State High School students traded a bit of Aussie culture for the sweet sounds of a visiting Taiwanese orchestra this week.

Deputy principal Melissa Winks said Bremer’s music and performing arts students were gob smacked at the skill and professionalism of the ensemble, which put on a half-hour performance for their hosts.
“It was a wonderful cultural and learning experience for our students,” Ms Winks said.
“They don’t get to see a band of that magnitude and standard often, so it is great that our kids have been exposed to it.” [FULL STORY]
