For the last 10 years, Mrs. Ashley Romaniuk from H.A. Kostash School in Smoky Lake has led an extracurricular music program for students with a rock n’ roll attitude. She stays with students after school or during lunch several days a week to practice learning how to play the drums, guitar, piano and how to sing. Then they have a year-end performance on a stage fit for a rock star.
In this year's music show, titled “Romesfest 2016”, held on April 19, featured over 53 students. The show was for free to anyone wanting to come and watch.
This year’s show not only had H.A. K. students, but also had some special guests: students involved in Mrs. Romaniuk’s previous music program at Vilna school. Several teachers from the HAK staff also performed in the show.
Some of the songs that were performed included Back in Black, Rock of Ages, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Smoke on the Water, Cadillac Ranch, Titanium, Love Yourself, and Mama I’m Coming Home.
The students performed well and a great time was had by all.
