ROLEX Presents Career Transition For Dancers’


Monday, November 8, 2010 at 7:00pm  New York CITY CENTER


Rolex presents Career Transition For Dancers’ 25th ANNIVERSARY SILVER JUBILEE:A STAR-STUDDED RETROSPECTIVEon Monday, November 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm at New York City Center, 131 West 55 Street (btwn. 6th and 7th  Ave) NYC.  Hosted by Angela Lansbury, the five-time Tony Award-winning actress, and legendary star of musicals, films and television icon; the spectacular evening will highlight magical moments from past glittering galas.  Award winning composer Marvin Hamlisch has created a  Pièce d’occasion.

Capturing the essence of the dancer in music is one of the many talents of Marvin Hamlisch; the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer of A Chorus Line, who has written about dancers in many stages of their careers.  Producer/Director Ann Marie DeAngelo, asked him if he would be willing to write a song that caught the spirit of dancers as they move into their second act.  Thus, the new song, I’m Really Dancing will premiere at the Gala.  Mr. Hamlisch enlisted Rupert Holmes, who has written the book and lyrics for musicals such as the Tony Award-winning Drood and Curtains.  Together they created a light-hearted anthem that captures the spirit of the dancer that always stays alive, whether they transition within the field or out of it.  Mr. Hamlisch will perform the song that will be sung by Angela Lansbury and others.  The musical arrangement is by David Caldwell with choreography by Ms. DeAngelo.

As a composer, Marvin Hamlisch has won virtually every major award that exists: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globe awards.  He is one of only two people to have been awarded Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and a Tony plus a Pulitzer Prize (the other is Richard Rodgers)  He was Musical Director and arranger of Barbra Streisand’s historic 1994 concert tour of the U.S. and England as well as of the television special, “Barbra Streisand: The Concert” (for which he received two of his Emmys).  Mr. Hamlisch was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for his score of the film, The Informant.  In addition to many personal concert dates each year, he is the Principal Pops Conductor for the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DCand Symphony Orchestras in Pittsburgh, Dallas, Colorado, Milwaukee, Seattle and San Diego.
