The Plummer Home for Boys in Salem is a non-profit group home for teenage boys between 12 and 18. Many of the boys have a history of abuse and neglect, while some struggle with managing their behaviors.
Two years ago, the boys began tapping the keys of a donated piano.
This year, they wrote, composed and recorded their own CD. And it’s good.
