How the Arts Are Spreading in One of America’s Most Notorious Prisons

Grammy award-winning vocalist Joyce DiDonato brought her talents to one of America’s most notorious prisons to help inmates write and perform their own original compositions.

Sing Sing Correctional Facility is famous for executions. Before 1972, 614 people were put to the electric chair. The chair was later moved to another prison where it has remained out of use.

As a world class musical organization, Carnegie Hall is helping to spread the arts through Sing Sing as part of its Musical Connections program. Watch the video to see how extraordinarily touching the experience is for both Joyce DiDonato and the inmates she works with.
