The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra presents a tribute to the late Marvin Hamlisch in the Pops Series concert on April 1, featuring the sounds of Jodi Benson, a Tony-award nominee known for her role as the voice of Ariel in The Little Mermaid; Scarlett Strallen, the star of numerous Broadway and London West End shows; and Phantom of the Opera’s Doug LaBreque, Broadway actor and frequent Hamlisch collaborator. Performances are at Bob Carr Theater, 401 W. Livingston Street, Orlando, Florida at 2 & 8 p.m.
“Marvin’s genius shines through in the rich legacy of music he left us, and this wonderful concert reminds all of us how extraordinary that legacy is. “- Keith Lockhart (The Boston Pops)
Larry Blank, one of the most prolific and sought after conductors and orchestrators in the entertainment business today, will lead the Philharmonic in a rousing tribute to one of the most celebrated and decorated standard writers of the twentieth century.
Hamlisch, composer and conductor, spent over four decades of his life composing for film, theatre, and Broadway and in that time raked up an impressive earning of multiple Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards. He also collected a Pulitzer Prize and two Golden Globes.
