EDITORS’ NOTES

For millennia, lullabies have calmed babies—a testament to the elemental bonding power of music. Inspired by Carnegie Hall’s Lullaby Project, Hopes & Dreams unites world-renowned artists from a variety of genres—pop, jazz, classical, world music, and folk—in a shared celebration of this most tender of music. Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Noah”), mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato (“Peace”), alt-rock singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant (“Hey Baby Boy”), and Beninese musician and activist Angélique Kidjo (“Esso, Esso”), to name just a few, bring magic and richness to some extraordinary, original, and often witty songs. The final, joyful “Dream Big” brings together a spectacular cast of soloists, choirs, and instrumentalists.
