Musicians Changing the World

Presented by the Samuel B. Hanser Memorial Trust

Lynn Chang

Violinist Lynn Chang performs music that he played at the Nobel ceremonies in Oslo in place of the imprisoned Peace Prize laureate, Liu Xiaobo. This master violinist also performed at the Kennedy Center Honors, in tribute to his friend, Yo-Yo Ma.


Stan Strickland

Singer, saxophonist, flutist and actor, Stan Strickland goes to the roots of American Jazz to inspire young people, and works with troubled adolescents to reveal their inner talent.


Women of the World

The popular and versatile "Women of the World" have dedicated their careers to performing the music of diverse cultures, integrating their own unique heritages and musical styles in beautiful harmony.


Tiger Okoshi

Tiger Okoshi is a versatile trumpeter who has played both fusion and fairly straight-ahead jazz. After the devastating earthquakes in Japan, he began to see humanity like a huge river universally moving in one direction. In his mind, he could see the hands of people reaching for help from the wreckage. He made a resolve to try to reach out whenever he could to help those who were struggling.


Christiane Karam & ZilZALA

Led by award-winning vocalist/composer Christiane Karam, the ZilZALA Middle Eastern Ensemble is a Boston-based World Music group that draws from several musical cultures to re-interpret traditional Arabic and Balkan Music. Christiane's projects not only make musical sense, but they show how to make harmony in our global society.



“Musicians Changing the World” benefits the Samuel B. Hanser Memorial Trust. Sam Hanser, who died just short of his 28th birthday, believed in a world where people would be empowered to help themselves. The performers are empowering others by using their talent to change the world, influencing society in significant ways.
