Terre Blair Hamlisch to The Inquirer – The Philly Pops salute to Marvin Hamlisch

Philadelphia, PA – Philly Pops celebrates Marvin Hamlisch. His Widow Terre Blair Hamlisch will be in attendance during Friday March 14th. She spoke to The Inquirer:

“Every time Marvin came home from working in Saratoga [with the Philadelphia Orchestra] he was floating on clouds. That’s how good they played and how excited he was”

The show is a well-traveled package conducted by Larry Blank and featuring Donna McKechnie, the original 1975 star of Hamlisch’s greatest Broadway hit, A Chorus Line. But the Kimmel engagement has special significance: Hamlisch had signed on to succeed Peter Nero at the Philly Pops only four days before he died.
