Orchestra plays for inmates

In a cultural first for this state, on September 13 the 98 members of the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra gave a performance inside the Puente Grande state penitentiary located on the outskirts of Guadalajara. 

The orchestra performed Peer Gynt by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. Jalisco’s “reintegration centers,” as they are called, offer inmates opportunities for theater, painting, music, dance and literature.
