This reminded me of when Glimmerglass Opera performed at a prison. Regards, Len

Only brief excerpts at YT. To his and their credit, Kremer did not patronize his audience.

I truly admire what Gidon Kremer is doing in this regard. Not only is he a fabulous violinist, but is apparently a very caring human being. He is trying to make a big difference in the world, which we sorely need. Kudos to him.
