PHOENIX -- The magic of Mozart is coming live to Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Tent City Sunday night.

ASU Professor Qingqing Ye and retired London lawyer RJ Astor will perform for inmates.

According to a news release from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the concert is Astor's idea. He travels the world to expose more people to classical music.

Arpaio said the show comes at no cost to taxpayers and that he plans to attend.

"This is a fairly young, male audience. And I might expect a little heckling at first, but maybe after a few numbers, an appreciation might set in," he said.

The last professional concert at Tent City was in 2004 when country singer Glen Campbell performed after serving time for a DUI.
