The Delphi Prison Project

The Delphi Trio, partnered with organizations in the local Bay Area community, presents live concerts to incarcerated individuals in prisons and jails. The mission of this project is to create accessibility and educational opportunities for citizens with limited rights and no regular access to concert experiences. The Delphi Trio members and other musicians/ensembles in the community work together to perform and present high-quality musical experiences to inmates within their own facilities. Scheduled visits include curated programs, discussions and interactions with the residents, and Q&As.

If the facility does not have a piano, the Delphi Trio works with local rental companies to rent and deliver pianos to ensure the residents the full concert sound. All involved musicians donate their time and skills to perform for residents in these facilities. If you’d like to support this cause (travel costs, piano rental), please visit our donation page here.
