The Lullaby Project, part of Carnegie Hall’s Musical Connections program, creates musical experiences for pregnant women and new mothers in their teenage years or who are facing challenging circumstances such as homelessness or incarceration. The project invites participants to work with professional artists to write a personal lullaby for their babies, strengthening the bond between parent and child. Now extending across the country, the Lullaby Project enables partner organizations to support families in their own communities.
This project is part of Musical Connections, a program which harnesses the transformative power of music by offering concerts, workshops, and longer-term projects that inspire creativity as well as encourage lifelong learning and artistic growth. These programs serve the public in all five boroughs, as well as people involved in the homeless, foster care, health care, juvenile justice, and adult corrections systems.
