Barbra Streisand The Concert




Barbra Streisand The Concert
 1994 | J.E.G. Productions, Inc., Home Box Office

On her first concert tour in 30 years, Barbra Streisand captivated sellout audiences around the country. In the view of the Peabody Board, this cablecast of her landmark performance, produced by J.E.G. Productions for Home Box Office, is testimony to how great the presentation of music on television can be. Streisand’s enduring popularity is punctuated by her many hits, including “The Way We Were,” “Evergreen” and “People.” An unmatched concert performer, Streisand was accompanied by a 64-piece orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. Ms. Streisand, along with executive producers Martin Erlichman and Gary Smith, co-producer and co-director Dwight Hemion, and writers Alan and Marilyn Bergman, is responsible for documenting this exceptional concert experience for the cable television audience. For bringing her unique gift of music to the television screen with a matching talent for production mastery, a Peabody goes to Barbra Streisand The Concert.
