The power of music to heal: Lullaby Project brings Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra musicians together with mothers at risk
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – If there was a Grammy category for a musical program that promotes healing and strengthens the bond between parent and child, the Lullaby Project would most certainly be up for an award during tonight's 63rd annual ceremony.
The Lullaby Project, conceived by New York's Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute, pairs mothers at risk with musicians to put to music their stories and poems creating personal lullabies for their children expressing their hopes and dreams for the future.
The concept has spread to dozens of Symphony Orchestras across the country and now includes the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra who’s partnered with Sojourner Family Peace Center, their clients, and John Tanner, music writer of Tanner-Monagle Music.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Mike Strehlow highlighted special partnership transforming the lives of people facing major life challenges.
