Classical music is of eminent importance to the development of children’s personalities. We are convinced of this. In addition to the Lullaby Collection which we published on YouTube, we would like to take a new classical music project to the schools of our surrounding region. And so we hope that, supported by selected ensembles, we will be able to inspire enthusiasm in as many children as possible in this rural region with these hands-on children’s projects.

Following a suggestion by the Schloss Weißenbrunn Foundation, musicians from all over the world have recorded lullabies. So far, the collection comprises around 100 videos which the musicians either had sung to them as children or which they sang to their own children. There are also some new lullabies, some of them especially written for our project.
