The Carnegie Hall Lullaby Project: Collaborative Songwriting for Social Impact
Tuesday, January 30 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PMFree
SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY! What can we as artists learn from universal lullaby traditions? How can we help parents express complex feelings about parenting, particularly those experiencing post-partum depression, homelessness or incarceration, through song? How can we make space for participants to create original, sing-able lyrics and melodies for their lullabies?
Carnegie Hall’s Lullaby Project offers collaborative sessions for parents and parents-to-be in which they write personal lullabies for their children, working side by side with Teaching Artists in New York City and around the country. Join Lullaby Project artists Emily Eagen (voice, ukelele), and Pala Garcia (violin) for a fun, interactive workshop that takes you through the collaborative songwriting process. They’ll share best practices through this dynamic workshop, giving you the chance to practice crafting melodies and lyrics, have you up and singing together, and give you creative tools for song creation that you can apply to any setting. All artists interested in using songwriting to express and strengthen human connections are welcome!
