Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli took turns singing songs by the late Marvin Hamlisch during a stirring memorial service for the composer on Tuesday.
Admirers of Marvin Hamlisch, including former President Bill Clinton and Liza Minnelli, gathered Tuesday to bid farewell to the celebrated songwriter hailed as “the people’s composer.”
Hamlisch’s career included composing, conducting and arranging music from Broadway to Hollywood. His movies included “The Way We Were” and “Sophie’s Choice.”
It’s Broadway’s biggest night and you can celebrate in North Texas – for free!!
He is one of the world’s premiere composers and conductors and we are proud in North Texas to call Marvin Hamlisch our Dallas Symphony Pops Conductor!
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra hosts Happy Hour with Hamlisch from 5-6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 2, in the lobby of the Morton H. Meyerson, 2301 Flora St.
