The Society of Composers & Lyricists (SCL) will honor composer and SCL Advisory Board member Alan Menken with the Lifetime Achievement Award during the 31st edition of the Holiday Dinner, to be celebrated on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at the Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles, CA).
Menken’s music, songs, and scores have become an integral part of our culture since his first works were produced nearly 40 years ago, with his stage musicals, song and score credits for film musicals, individual songs for films, and television credits.
He has won more Academy Awards than any other living individual, including 8 Oscars with 4 for Best Score and 4 for Best Song, 11 Grammys, 7 Golden Globes, the London Evening Standard Award, the Olivier Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award. In 2001 he received the distinction of being named a Disney Legend. He was also awarded two doctorates in Fine Arts from New York University and the North Carolina School of the Arts, and in 2010 received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
