Discover week four of Proms at Home

This week’s Proms At Home activity is inspired by Lullabies. Stravinsky included a Russian Lullaby in his Firebird Ballet. But you’ll hear lullabies in almost every home.

The Lullaby Project, run by the Irene Taylor Trust, gives participants an opportunity to create songs for their children, and uses music to break down barriers.

Now you have a chance to meet the participants and listen to their songs. The lullabies you will hear have all been arranged by Nick Hayes and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Then, discover fun facts about a lullaby that features in the Proms - Stravinsky's Lullaby from The Firebird!

About Irene Taylor Trust

Since 1995, the Irene Taylor Trust has supported those in or on the fringes of the criminal justice system and other vulnerable groups to tell their stories through music they create and perform themselves. Music can break down barriers and help people who have found themselves on the fringes of society to become celebrated and valued members of the community.

About The Lullaby Project

The Lullaby Project, a national programme of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute is delivered in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and gives the mums and dads they work with an opportunity to create songs for their children.
