Lullaby Project Recordings

The Lullaby Project gives mums and dads in challenging circumstances the opportunity to create bespoke lullabies alongside professional musicians, allowing them to explore their thoughts and feelings about their children, enhancing the bond between them by creating something that can be treasured forever.

The Lullaby Project was originally devised by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute in the US and was first brought to the UK in 2017 by the  Irene Taylor Trust and RPO Resound. Following the success of these original projects, the partners are rolling out The Lullaby Project to three regions of the UK in 2020/21, working with criminal justice and community support groups in London, Suffolk and Hull as part of a wider programme supported by Arts Council England.

The programme kicked off in London in early 2020, creating sixteen lullabies with mothers and fathers in challenging circumstances. Have a listen to some of the tracks written and recorded with mothers and fathers from Praxis Community ProjectsClean Break and Sounding Out.

Here I Go: A short animated film about music in mental health settings

The RPO and Cambridge Live teamed up with The Phoenix Centre – a specialised eating disorder unit for young people aged 12-18 based at the Ida Darwin Hospital in Cambridge - to deliver a creative music-making project. A team of RPO musicians and workshop leader Sigrún Sævarsdóttir-Griffiths have visited the centre to work with young people currently receiving treatment. The project aimed to improve mental health, encourage self-exploration and boost confidence through creativity, and included elements of poetry and lyric writing, guided group improvisation and composition.
