We are excited to announce that some of our In the Band (FKA SoundArt) students accompanied the legend himself, Roger Waters, on stage during his Los Angeles Tour dates.
Roger Waters is a founding member of progressive rock band Pink Floyd. It is In the Band’s pleasure to have our students perform at all three of his Staples Center dates on June 20, 21, and 27, 2017. This is truly an unforgettable moment of collaboration for our organization.
For WATERS' L.A. three-date run of shows, an ensemble of 10- to 15-year-old students from ALISO PICO RECREATION CENTER (BOYLE HEIGHTS), VIEW PARK HIGH SCHOOL (SOUTH L.A.), and ST. BERNARD CATHOLIC SCHOOL (GLASSELL PARK) were chosen to perform "Another Brick in the Wall." The group of 15 In the Band musicians sang background vocals and performed choreography.
Commented In the Band Co-Executive Director JUSTIN BOCCHIERI, "One of In the Band's main objectives is to present real-world musical experiences to our students, ROGER WATERS' offer to have our kids perform with him proves to be the perfect partnership. This gives In the Band students the opportunity to participate in the highest level of stage production with a true legend!"
