We Lost an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award Winner Today – RIP Marvin Hamlisch

That’s right, Marvin Hamlisch was one of only eleven to ever win all four prestigious awards not to mention he also won multiple Golden Globes, as well.

Unfortunately, the composer passed away today at age 68.

Locally, Hamlisch’s name was synonymous with the San Diego Symphony’s Summer Pops, as he was the principal conductor.

Another huge musical loss in 2012, RIP Marvin Hamlisch!

Tonights Practice Session

Tonights Practice Session

This is one of the pieces I played for my Junior recital working towards my B.M. I haven’t played it in 15 plus years. This piece, “Nortena,” by Argentinian composer Jorge Gomez Crespo is a lullaby which combines European and Amerindian influences.
All apologies to the emails I haven’t gotten to this evening but I need to get some music time in tonight.
