Join CHE researcher Dr Samantha Dieckmann for a very special evening of community-music discussion, lullaby singing and Q&A at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

Dr Dieckmann is the co-founder and choir leader of multicultural singing group the Lullaby Choir, which brings the diverse communities of Melbourne’s north together — one song at a time.

The Lullaby Choir, a joint initiative of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music at The University of Melbourne and VICSEG New Futures, aims to promote cultural connection through the lullabies that soothe babies the world over.

Come and meet the choristers and learn about the power of song. You might even join in on some singing!

Engaged through The University of Melbourne-Melbourne Recital Centre Learning Partnership. Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and The University of Melbourne.

The Lullaby choir is part of a larger 'Music, Emotion and Conciliation' research project by Dr Dieckmann and Professor Jane Davidson that involves designing and implementing interfaith and intercultural community music programs that foster emotional empathy.
