The Juilliard School is planning a star-filled private musical tribute to Marvin Hamlisch that will include Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli.

The composer, who became the youngest person accepted by Juilliard at age 7, died August 6 in Los Angeles.

The memorial will be held Tuesday night at the school’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

Hamlisch composed or arranged hundreds of scores for musicals and movies, including “A Chorus Line” on Broadway and the films “The Sting,” ”Sophie’s Choice” and ”The Way We Were.”

Also slated to perform include Itzhak Perlman, Michael Feinstein, Chris Botti, Maria Friedman, Brian d’Arcy James and Carter Brey, as well as former cast members of “A Chorus Line” and cast members of “The Nutty Professor,” the musical he was working on when he died.
