Lullaby Project

Attend the 2024 Lullaby Project concert


The Lullaby Project – conceived by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute – uses the creative process of songwriting to improve well-being and child bonds with parents experiencing housing insecurity and other challenging life situations. Together with musicians from the Oregon Symphony and local singer-songwriters, parents and parents-to-be are creating personal lullabies for their children, expressing their hopes and dreams for the future.


In 2018, this collaboration began as part of our Sounds of Home community initiative, and is in close partnership with Path Home (formerly Portland Homeless Family Solutions) a nonprofit organization that empowers homeless families with children to get back into stable, long-term housing. We are continuing our commitment to this impactful program, and we plan on developing and growing it over the years to involve other partner organizations in need of the healing powers of music.
