The Lullaby Project in Madison
The Lullaby Project uses the creative process of songwriting to help new and expectant parents express their hopes and dreams for the future through music. The project pairs local singer-songwriters, mothers and mothers-to-be to create personal lullabies for their children, supporting maternal health, aiding child development, and strengthening the bond between parent and child.
The music created by the mothers, songwriters, and musicians have been professionally arranged and recorded. They will be showcased a special community performance at Kids in the Rotunda on March 28, 2020.
In 2019, this collaboration began in partnership with Harambee Village Doulas, a community-based doula agency that consists of a team of trusted, compassionate women trained by the industry's leading doula organizations. Their mission is to enhance the childbearing experience, empowering women by promoting doula support, advocating evidenced based care and providing accessible education based on the mother-centered model of maternity care.
Overture Center is pleased to be one of over thirty organizations across the country and the world to be a Lullaby Project partner, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
