Rueibin Chen participate at American composer Marvin Hamlisch's Memorial Benefit Gala

In the world of music, Pasadena will remember the great Marvin Hamlisch, the Oscar-winning composer who headed the Pasadena POPS for two seasons and died suddenly on Aug. 6 due to lung failure. Hamlisch will be honored at a Sept. 15 concert by the Pasadena Symphony and POPS. Originally meant as a tribute to symphony supporter Edith Roberts, the show has been reworked to honor Hamlisch and features Rita Moreno, Martin Short, Dave Koz, Liz Callaway, Marc Shaiman, David Garrison, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers and pianist Rueibin Chen. -------- Pasadena Weekly , 08/23/2012
