HSO hosts Dinner with Marvin Hamlisch fundraiser this Friday

That's right, the legendary Marvin Hamlisch will be sitting down to dinner with about 115 lucky Nutmeggers this Friday, April 16th to benefit the educational and cultural programs of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. You too could be among these fortunate friends to rub elbows with the multiple award-winning musical mind behind A Chorus Line, and movies like The Sting, The Informant!, Sophie's Choice, The Goodbye Girl and more.

The event at The Pond House in Elizabeth Park begins at 6pm with wine and hors d'oeuvres (and a chance to meet Mr. Hamlisch of course!), followed by a sit down dinner, entertainment from Mr. Hamlisch, and another opportunities to meet and greet.

Joining Mr. Hamlisch at Friday's event will be Julie Budd and renowned Barbra Streisand impersonator, Steven Brinberg, both of whom join Mr. Hamlisch Saturday evening for the Hartford Symphony Orchestra's Pops! concert, A Tribute to Barbra Streisand. However, on Friday evening, Mr. Brinberg will not be dressed as Babs.

Your opportunity to dine with Mr. Hamlisch, Ms. Budd and Mr. Brinberg ends at 3:30 p.m. today as that is your last chance to purchase tickets. Call 860-246-8742, ext. 336 to do so.

Tickets for the Saturday evening A Tribute to Barbra Streisand at The Bushnell are available online or by calling the HSO Box Office at 860-244-2999.
