OWENSBORO, KY – The Owensboro Symphony’s Music On Call Community Engagement program continues to receive national and regional attention for the powerful and positive impact it is having on inmates at the Daviess County Detention Center. The detention center women’s choir will be featured on an episode of KET’s “Kentucky Life” series on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 8 p.m. Eastern. 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 Dr. 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. After several rehearsals at the detention center the choir performed for a Sunday service at Settle United Methodist Church.
The KET film crew spent a full day last fall taping the episode, including interviews with Dr. Diane Earle, Jeremy Stephens, Symphony’s Director of Operations, and Art Maglinger, Daviess County Jailer.
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.
