From Stockholm, Sweden, to Redlands, California, we
joined fellow artists to celebrate the power of the arts—
and music, in particular—to inspire, to communicate,
and to unite.
Among other honors, Yo-Yo Ma received his ﬁrst award
for contributions to contemporary music through the
Silk Road Project.
And in delivering the 2013 Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts
and Public Policy, he moved a leading national forum
to consider how essential the arts are to strengthening
our culture and positively inﬂuencing society.
These world-stage opportunities remind us all how
through the arts we work together for something much
greater than ourselves.

Message from Golnar Khosrowshahi
It's an exciting time to be working at the intersection…
Nancy Hanks Lecture 2013: Yo-Yo Ma
"Societies are powered by three engines: politics,
economics and culture. A vibrant society exists
when all three engines are ﬁring and intersecting,
resulting in a populace that is energized, engaged
and fulﬁlled." —YO-YO MA
