Director Statement

When producing partner and artist Katherine Liner first approached me, several years ago, with a vision for a project that centered around treasured musical compositions, I was intrigued. Our collaboration began with fleshing out a musical concept: how could we pay proper tribute to these greatly revered masters of classical music, while simultaneously offering a fresh and unique approach? The result is Lullabies in Motion--a collection of captivating musical vignettes that marries stunning, poetic imagery with unforgettable music--and enchanted vocals performed by Ms. Liner herself. Our hope is that our project will soothe and enlighten audiences of all ages, providing a respite from the concerns and stresses of modern life.
