Arts Capacity and the South Carolina Philharmonic launch an interactive prison concert program

Arts Capacity and the South Carolina Philharmonic have joined forces in an unprecedented partnership to launch an interactive prison concert program in South Carolina correctional facilities. This collaboration represents a significant advancement in using music as a tool for inspiration, healing, and rehabilitation within the prison system.

The innovative program, developed by Arts Capacity, will feature live symphonic music performed by South Carolina Philharmonic musicians. Tailored to the unique needs and preferences of incarcerated individuals, these interactive concert experiences aim to foster engagement and personal growth among participants.

Holly Mulcahy, Founder and Executive Director of Arts Capacity, expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration, emphasizing its potential to strengthen familial ties and positively impact communities beyond prison walls. She highlighted music’s ability to transcend barriers and uplift spirits, underscoring the transformative effects it can have on individuals and communities.

The inaugural concert, scheduled to take place later in 2024 at Camille Graham Correctional Center in Columbia, South Carolina, represents a groundbreaking initiative in leveraging music for social good. It is expected to leave a lasting impression on the lives of incarcerated individuals in South Carolina.
