The Lullaby Project

The Lullaby Project, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) pairs pregnant women and new mothers with songwriters to write, record, and perform a personal lullaby online. The lullabies cover a wide range of musical genres and styles, and encapsulate participants’ personal experiences with motherhood – featuring lyrics and melodies full of raw emotion, vulnerability, and love. Each year 12-16 young mothers, with varying levels of musical experience, take this journey with us. Previous songwriters involved in the Lullaby Project include Peter Katz, Liz Lokre, Mappe Of, Tanika Charles, Murray Foster, Cathy Nosaty, Carlie Howell, and Lis Soderberg; and recordings feature performances from Christine Bougie, Alanna Stuart, Adam Warner, Adrian X, Shawnee, and many more
