Description

With a clarinet, saxophone, or violin in handcuffed hands, a group of prisoners travel to the national theater in Lima, the Peruvian capital. The purpose—is for the prisoners to play music with members of the National Symphony Orchestra.

And the inmates have already learned to play the theme from "Game of Thrones" and pieces from Beethoven.

Peru's prison service is offering music lessons for those prisoners who have an ear for music. It is part of a pioneering program to rehabilitate criminals, who have been convicted of murder, robbery, and drug trafficking.
