A Tribute to Alan and Marilyn Bergman

Synopsis:

Friday, May 29th at 8 p.m.

A Tribute to Alan and Marilyn Bergman

Hosted by Quincy Jones

Special guests include Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Dave Grusin, James Newton Howard and Michel Legrand

More than 50 years ago, Marilyn Keith met another up-and-coming young songwriter named Alan Bergman, marking the start of a personal and professional partnership that has resulted in sixteen Oscar® nominations and three statuettes, for “The Windmills of Your Mind” (“The Thomas Crown Affair,” 1968), “The Way We Were” (“The Way We Were,” 1973), and the song score for “Yentl” (1983).

As a songwriting team, Alan and Marilyn Bergman have written the lyrics for hundreds of songs for film, television, theater, recordings and concert performances. Their musical collaborators include a “who’s who” of composers: Cy Coleman, Dave Grusin, Marvin Hamlisch, James Newton Howard, Quincy Jones, Michel Legrand, Henry Mancini, Johnny Mandel and John Williams, to name a few. Their songs have been interpreted on film by such musical legends as Barbra Streisand, Ray Charles and Luciano Pavarotti.

In 1982, the Bergmans became the first lyricists to be nominated for three of the year’s five Academy Award®-nominated songs: “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” (“Best Friends”), “If We Were in Love” (“Yes, Giorgio”) and “It Might Be You” (“Tootsie”).

The following year they again received three nominations (two for songs and one for the song score of “Yentl”).

Highlighting their illustrious work for feature films, Alan and Marilyn will be celebrated through film clips, personal remembrances from their colleagues and friends, and live performances of several Oscar-nominated songs.
