The Lullaby Project: Making Music at Mary's Place

The Lullaby Project is an intensive Community Connections project from Seattle Symphony in which mothers in challenging circumstances come together with specialized Symphony teaching artists and musicians to write, record, and perform lullabies for their children.

We are honored to have those involved come perform their works at the Northwest Folklife Festival on May 29 in the Center Theater as part of our 2016 Cultural Focus Program, "The Power of the Human Voice through Song."
