The Oscar-winning composer, who died Monday at the age of 68, will be laid to rest in New York City.

The life of Marvin Hamlisch, the prolific composer and arranger who won Oscars for his work in The Way We Were and The Sting, will be celebrated next week with a visitation and funeral service, his representatives said Thursday.

The funeral will be held Tuesday at New York City's Temple Emanu-El at 11 a.m. It will be open to the public, as will visitations on Sunday and Monday from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel.

Hamlisch, who was 68, collapsed and died Monday in Los Angeles following a short illness.

One of only three composers to win an Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy, Hamlisch also received a Pulitzer Prize for the Broadway musical A Chorus Line in 1975. He and Richard Rodgers are the only people to win all five awards.
