Marvin Hamlisch

Marvin Hamlisch is one of the most decorated musical figures in history. Winner of three Oscars, three Golden Globes, four Emmy’s, four Grammy’s, a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, the late conductor/composer wrote over forty film scores alongside his considerable stage work (including Broadway favorite A Chorus Line). And for the last few years of his life, Dallas got to call Hamlisch its own while he served as the Pops conductor at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. With the assistance of conductor Larry Blank and vocalists Jodi Benson, Doug LaBrecque and Donna McKechnie, The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will celebrate Hamlisch’s legacy by performing some of his most cherished works. Catch performances at Bass Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday or at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets start at just $20. More information at fwsymphony.org. JONATHAN PATRICK
