The SoHarmoniums, New York’s Own Women’s Choir presents Laughter, Love and Lullabies, a concert celebrating the joys of all forms of motherhood. Our program offers five new works as diverse as the mothers themselves who, through the words and remembered sounds of their own backgrounds and cultures, learn how to greet and cherish their new babies. These world premieres are choral arrangements from Carnegie Hall’s Lullaby Project, which seeks to deepen and solidify the unique connection between each new parent and child. Pregnant and new mothers worked together with professional artists to craft their personal hopes and dreams into these five enchanting lullabies.
This concert also features The Goddess Turns Magic into Music, composer Francisco J. Núñez, a work for treble choir, piano and cello that was written especially to honor the SoHarmoniums and its artistic founder, Elizabeth Núñez, on the occasion of its tenth anniversary in 2016.
The SoHarmoniums are delighted to welcome the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, under the baton of Associate Conductor Sophia Papoulis, as guest artists for this program.
