The Marvin Hamlisch International Music Awards discovers and champions youth and emerging composers from around the world. The awards were created to honor the late Marvin Hamlisch, paying tribute to his remarkable legacy as both an artist and an advocate for emerging talent. The inaugural event was held on November 18 at Kupferberg Center for the Arts in partnership with Queens College City University of New York.
Hamlisch’s prolific career spanned Broadway, film, television, and major concert appearances. His theatre scores included the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning hit A Chorus Line, as well as Smile, The Goodbye Girl, Sweet Smell of Success, and The Nutty Professor. An Oscar winner for The Way We Were and The Sting, Hamlisch also scored The Fan and wrote the music for the Carly Simon hit “Nobody Does It Better” from The Spy Who Loved Me.
