Chicago Parents Craft Unique Lullabies For Their Babies

For our series exploring how relationships are being impacted by the pandemic, today we focus on the bond between new parents and their babies through the lens of The Lullaby Project, a national program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, which partners new parents from under-resourced communities with professional musicians to create a personal lullaby for their child.

Reset hears from a local leader of the project and a parent participant to learn more.

GUESTS: Anne-Marie Akin, resident musician and library consultant at Educare Chicago. ; faculty member at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music
