A TALENTED school concert band wowed an international audience during its latest European tour.
Northgate High School's 42-strong band visited the Czech Republic's capital city of Prague.
For four days the band performed at a variety of locations including some of the spectacular orthodox churches and the world-famous Christmas Markets.
The band consists of pupils from years seven to 13 and also includes some former students who are returning for the tour.
Despite having to survive a 23-hour coach journey, the band members enjoyed experiencing the culture - and cold - of a city that is often used by Hollywood as a location for many of its blockbuster films.
While there, the band visited the St Vitus Cathedral, King Charles' bridge and the Ossuary at Kutna Hora, as well as experiencing Prague by night on a cruise down the river Vltava and participating in a Czech folk evening.
