  1. Hello! I just would like to say that this tribute to Marvin Hamlisch was very emotional for me. Glad to be there. (Vanessa Campagna and Rocky Pattera are grown ups now!) -- Fantastic performers during the evening.
    I am a long time Pittsburgh Symphony patron and attended Marvin’s concerts during his long tenure with the Pittsburgh Symphony. An easy going man. Funny and witty. I will never forget his “Rent a Composer” segments. Hilarious!
    RIP Marvin! Love. Karen
