When Roger Waters needed a bunch of rebellious teens and pre-teens to visualize the angst of "Another Brick in the Wall" onstage, he knew just who to call—School of Rock Portland.
Six kids from the local music academy, along with six students of Justin Matz's drum school in Portland, performed a choreographed routine during the Pink Floyd frontman's performance at his June 25 tour stop at Moda Center.
According to School of Rock Music Director David Coniglio, representatives from Waters' management contacted the school only a few days prior to the concert, asking for children between the ages of 10 and 15 who'd like to take the stage with the rock legend. The kids donned orange jumpsuits and mouthed along to the famous chorus—originally sung by a choir of English schoolchildren—before removing the jumpsuits to reveal black shirts reading, "RESIST."
Coniglio says Waters also donated money to Portland Rock On With Us, a local music education nonprofit.
Sadly, Coniglio missed the show—he had his own gig at Mississippi Studios, playing drums with his band, 1939 Ensemble. But he—and you—can watch fan video of the performance below.
