A total of eight high school students from the Kindersley area have shown their musical talent as part of the 2018 Saskatchewan Honour Groups program.

The honour groups consist of the Saskatchewan Honour Band and the Saskatchewan Honour Choir. The students had to audition for the annual program and they spent three days in Saskatoon from Nov. 15 to 17 learning, rehearsing and, eventually, performing at Lakeview Church.

Seven of the eight students were in the Honour Band, and the group included six students from Kindersley Composite School (KCS) and one from Westcliffe Composite School. Andrew Glass, who attends KCS, was the lone student in the Honour Choir.

The seven Honour Band students were Kailey Herner of Kindersley (alto saxophone), Rachel Krogstad of Alsask (flute), Chelsea Martin of Flaxcombe (clarinet), Sidney Martin of Flaxcombe (trumpet), Charity Klassen of Kindersley (French horn), Samantha Mathewson of Kindersley (clarinet) and Tia Townsend of Kindersley (tenor saxophone).
