Len Prince’s photographs of the composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch chronicle the life and work of one of America’s cultural icons. Hamlisch is one of only twelve people to win all four major U.S. performing awards. His score for A Chorus Line earned him a Pulitzer, making him one of two (the other being Richard Rogers) to have won a “PEGOT” (Pulitzer, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award). A prolific composer, Hamlisch wrote the music for more than forty motion picture scores including The Way We Were, The Sting and Sophie’s Choice.

Also at the event the launch of a new fragrance by source adage was introduced under the name:
“What I Did For Love” is a romantic, floral scent of linden and citrus blossoms with seductive undertones of patchouli, musk and oud wood.*
Inspired by the music of Marvin Hamlisch and a shared philosophy of pursuing what you love, source adage composed this Special Edition fragrance with harmonious notes and accords in the same spirit of undying love and undefeated optimism that informed Marvin’s original score.”
