A program of the Academy for the Love of Learning, Lifesongs is an intergenerational arts project and a celebration of the human journey through music, poetry and dance. Lifesongs provides opportunities for meaningful and creative exchange between people of different ages, genders, race and life experiences, fostering communities of care, promoting social inclusion for elders and veterans, and restoring dignity through transformative storytelling.
Working one-on-one with professional Lifesongs artists and in ensembles, participants develop original works that incorporate music, movement, and multimedia to explore the richness of all stages of life. Lifesongs Concerts are the culmination of months of creative collaboration. The songs and stories are performed in a public concert by professional musicians, choirs, and artists of all ages. These concerts are casual and family friendly.
Lifesongs was founded in 2007 by The Santa Fe Opera and Littleglobe under the leadership of Acushla Bastible, Molly Sturges and Andrea Fellows Walters. Our founding partner was Christine Sandoval from the Santa Fe Care Center. In 2011, Lifesongs became a program of the Academy for the Love of Learning and Littleglobe.
