The Owensboro Symphony’s Music On Call Community Engagement program continues to receive national and regional attention for the positive impact it is having on inmates at the Daviess County Detention Center. The detention center women’s choir was featured on an episode of KET’s “Kentucky Life” series on Saturday.
It will air several more times throughout the week and will be available at ket.org. The choir is directed by Cathy Mullins, a private music instructor for the Symphony, in conjunction with Diane Earle, Music Director at Settle United Methodist Church and pianist with the Symphony, as well as Gloria Dean an Owensboro Health Regional Hospital employee and director of the Owensboro Health Employee Choir.
The KET film crew spent a full day last fall taping the episode, including interviews with Earle, Symphony Director of Operations Jeremy Stephens, and Daviess County Jailer Art Maglinger.
The Owensboro Symphony’s Music On Call Community Engagement program is designed to enhance and transform lives and bring comfort to those who are experiencing challenging circumstances. The program is made possible through the Owensboro Health Gives Community Benefit Grant.
