MARSHFIELD – Scrag Mountain Music, together with Healing Together, a project of the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, and Writers for Recovery present Healing Together: A Lullaby Project Celebration Concert, a program of beautiful and heartwarming songs created with moms and caretakers in our community through the Lullaby Project.
The celebratory event also includes a special community art project for all ages. This concert marks the culmination of three Lullaby Project workshops held this year together with Vermont Network advocacy partners Umbrella, Inc., Voices Against Violence, Kids-A-Part (a program of LUND) and DIVAS (a program of The Network).
Healing Together: A Lullaby Project Celebration Concert will be held on Sunday, July 24 at 1:30 p.m. (community art project) and 3 p.m. (concert) at the State House Lawn 115 State St., Montpelier (Rain Location: Bethany Church, 115 Main St. Montpelier). Free.
The Lullaby Project, a program begun by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, now with partners around the globe, pairs new parents with musicians to create unique songs for their babies. To date, thousands of new parents – incarcerated women, mothers in the NICU, teen parents, immigrant community members – around the globe have written lullabies through this project. Participation in the Lullaby Project is said to help with mother-infant bonding and communication as well as postpartum health of mother and baby.
