about

Most of the improvisations on this album were developed while playing music in the Special Care Nursery of Beverly Hospital in Beverly, MA. Studies have shown that the vibrations from plucked strings can assist the babies in learning to regulate their breathing and heartbeat (two of the main difficulties for premature infants requiring round-the-clock medical care).
The music was chosen to be soothing for both the babies and their families who are often in a great deal of pain on what should be one of the happiest days of their lives. Special thanks to Volunteer Services Manager Jane Karaman and the entire (incredible!) staff of the Special Care Nursery for all of their support during my time there.

Lily Press has a B.A. in music from Haverford College with a concentration in music history and harp performance and a Master of Music in Harp from the Longy School of Music of Bard College. She performs professionally in orchestras, chamber ensembles, weddings and solo recital venues. She plays both the concert grand pedal harp and folk harp.
