ABOUT THE LULLABY PROJECT

As part of Seattle Symphony’s Community Connections program the Lullaby Project offers mothers in distressed situations a unique opportunity to write a personal lullaby for their babies and children. Its broader purpose is to empower these mothers both as artists and as individuals. This project includes a creative workshop session, recording session to create a professional CD and final gathering to celebrate and sing the new songs.

For this project the Symphony has partnered with Mary’s Place, a local organization which empowers homeless women, children and families to reclaim their lives by providing shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope in a safe community.

Special thank you to Alyson Moon and Marty Hartman from Mary’s Place, Deidre Struck from Carnegie Hall and Ten Grands Seattle for donating roses.

This is a national program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
