The ME2 Orchestra describes itself as a classical music ensemble for individuals with mental health issues, and the people who support them.
This week, three members of the orchestra are touring prisons in Vermont, with hour-long performances for inmates.
Joining them on the tour is ME'2s music director Ronald Braunstein.
The idea is to bring music to this often-overlooked community, and provide Vermonters with a new window into our prisons.
VPR's Neal Charnoff talks about the program with Caroline Whiddon, the Executive Director of the ME2 Orchestra, and Will Kiendal, a member of the cello quartet.
