Additionally, musicians from the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra will join the project.

The Hawai’i-based sponsoring arts organizations are Leeward Community College Theatre, the UH West O’ahu Humanities|Music Program, and Honolulu Community Collegeʻs Mike Curb MELE Studios.

This year, The Lullaby Project involves expecting moms from Catholic Charities Mary Jane Home, student-parents from UH West O'ahu and Leeward Community College, and parents from other community partnering organizations including Alu Like and the Family Hui Hawai'i.
