With an Academy Award for his film score to Round Midnight and 14 Grammy Awards, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: in the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every popular music movement since the 1960's.

The occasion featured a concert by Mr. Hancock, who is also UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, with performances by Corinne Bailey Rae, Esperanza Spalding, Manu Katché and Stephen Brown.
