PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philly Pops are remembering Marvin Hamlisch. The legendary composer is one of history’s two PEGOT winners.
A PEGOT winner is someone who wins a Pulitzer, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award.
The Pops show strikes a chord for conductor and music director Todd Ellison, who considered Hamlisch a mentor and friend.
CBS3’s Jim Donovan caught up with Ellison at the Philadelphia Boys Choir rehearsal space to talk about his memories of Hamlisch.
You can catch “Hamlisch: With Love” this weekend at the Kimmel Center.
