New York State Prison Program Unlocks the Power Of Music

From the piece appearing in Strings Magazine:

“Musicambia has inmates at Sing Sing prison using music as rehabilitation. It’s April in New York, and the day feels full of promise and hope, the way the early spring does after many cold, hard months of winter. I’m in a room packed tightly with 21 amateur musicians preparing for a performance the following month. The men tune and talk, plug guitars into amplifiers, and fiddle with endpins and rosin”.
