Transformations™: Playing Incarcerated

Music can be made in some unusual places—on boats, in subway stations, even in the shower—but this place is special. Across the country, music programs for inmates are popping up in prisons and correctional centers, often supported entirely by volunteers. On PT, we'll go to the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center where a group of volunteers are teaching the women inmates how to hold a bow, how to play in an orchestra, and how to reconnect to their loved ones.
