Hoosiers and adopted Hoosiers are mourning the loss of a musical great.
Tony Award-winning Composer Marvin Hamlisch died in his Los Angeles home Monday following an undisclosed illness. He was 68 years old. Michael Feinstein, founder of the Carmel-based Great American Songbook Initiative, says Hamlisch could do anything musically. He believes Hamlisch deeply influenced the path of the American musical.
Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra spokesperson Jessica Di Santo says Hamlisch performed numerous times with the Symphony. Hamlisch won three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Tony, and a Pulitzer in 1975 for Best Original Score Written for the Theatre for A Chorus Line.
