Hopes and Dreams (The Lullaby Project)
In April, the Oregon Symphony presented a remarkable and powerful concert as part of its “Sounds of Home” series, where young mothers experiencing housing insecurity, had the opportunity to write lullabies for their children. These were performed by OSO musicians. Their concert was inspired by Carnegie Hall’s “Lullaby Project”, which recently released a CD under that title. I had the opportunity to speak with the acclaimed opera singer, Joyce DiDonato, about the CD. I think that you will find our conversation to be inspiring and moving; a message of hope for everyone who believes that if we give people a chance to express themselves through art, good things can happen.
