mom singing a lullaby to her infant

 

The Lullaby Project was started at Carnegie Hall and pairs pregnant women and new mothers with professional artists to write personal lullabies for their babies. In New York City, the project reaches mothers in hospitals, homeless shelters, schools, and at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. Extending across the country and through several international pilot programs, the Lullaby Project enables partner organizations to support families in their own communities.

The CREST Lab, under the direction of Sona Dimidjian at the University of Colorado Boulder, will partner with Carnegie Hall's Lullaby Project to bring this creative outlet to Colorado.  The Colorado Lullaby Project is scheduled to launch in May 2018 and will invite pregnant women and new mothers throughout the Boulder County community to create, sing and share lullabies to promote maternal health, child development, and parent-child attachment with the assistance of professional musicians.
