‘Orbital Drumline’ at Musikfest

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 by NICHOLAS ROLLAND in School

Liberty HS alumni, students Jam

Any other time of year, the street between Broad and the Central Moravian Church is known as Main Street. However, during Musikfest, the street becomes a venue named Provident Bank Main Street. It has all the fanfare that Main Street traditionally has plus performing stages for concerts, street vendors, buskers and music as far as the ears can hear. One of the groups performing routinely on Provident Bank Main street this year, was a group of current Liberty HS students and alumni who called themselves the Orbital Drumline.

‘Work hard at what you love’

Liberty HS music students learned what life is like in the music business on a Sunday afternoon at Musikfest. Students were invited to the Wind Creek Steel Stage at PNC plaza, the same stage that Lady Antebellum would grace later that evening, to see what goes into preparing for a show and to learn valuable life lessons on staying focused on long-term goals.

Grade: graduated senior

Family members: Seven rambunctious siblings, one graceful mother and one tenacious stepfather make the whole of my family.

Favorite subject: One of my favorite subjects would have to be psychology, because of both its complexity and simplicity relating to the brains of humans and animals. Another of my favorite subjects is forensic science, for a very similar reason. The intense studies of crime scenes and the simple striving for justice have always caught my attention.
