NEW YORK (AP) -- Friends and admirers of Marvin Hamlisch will gather Tuesday morning in New York City to bid farewell to the celebrated songwriter hailed as "the people's composer."
His funeral was to be held at Congregation Emanu-El, a prominent Upper East Side synagogue. The composer died Aug. 6 in Los Angeles at age 68.
Hamlisch composed or arranged hundreds of scores for musicals and movies, including "A Chorus Line" on Broadway and the films "The Sting," "Sophie's Choice," "Ordinary People" and "The Way We Were."
He won three Oscars, four Emmys, four Grammys, a Tony, a Pulitzer and three Golden Globes.
His versatility and ear for musical hooks meant he was as comfortable writing songs for Barbra Streisand as he was for a light Woody Allen comedy.
