Women's Prison Orchestra

You would think that after the widespread airing of this clip about Alaska's Hiland Mountain Correctional Center this past December that a google search for "Women's Prison Orchestra" would come up with many programs like it elsewhere in America.

I found a photograph of a prison orchestra in Iowa, but it was from nearly 100 years ago (1914). All mention of current orchestras in prisons on the internet are from prisons outside of America (China, the Philippines, and Venezuela).
