Four teenager singers had the "surreal" experience of performing inside the Port Kembla steelworks on Monday morning.
The tenors - Zac Ellevson, Wylie Lucas, Lachlan Moss and Kye Meizer- sung the Italian version of Unchained Melodyin front of the slab caster.
It comes ahead of the foursome's featured performance at this month's Southern Stars school spectacular.
"To think, I started [singing] when I was younger just singing to my parents and I started performing to eisteddfods. To now, I'm here performing at a steelworks doing something that I'd never thought i'd do in 100 years; I loved it," Wylie said.
"I found it intriguing as hell ... just learning about the way it was all made, and seeing the process and seeing the individual parts all working together.
"For me - someone who loves that stuff who nerds over it - I thought it was great."
