East Hill Singers prison chorus preview by Sara Shepherd
Larry Swinson, a slight, 75-year-old retiree, regularly slides into
church pews at Lansing Correctional Facility between much burlier,
blue-uniformed men with more tattoos and less singing experience. The Lawrence resident has been volunteering five years for the East
Hill Singers prison chorus, where having a guy in the mix who once
carried tunes in barbershop quartets can only help when it comes to
staying on key.
