On Monday, May 12, supporters of the Brooklyn Philharmonic are invited to gather around the piano at the Rainbow Room in Manhattan, where award-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch (“Chorus Line,” “The Way We Were”) will be tickling the ivories.

The Philharmonic’s spring gala benefit dinner will be a bittersweet affair as the excitement of seeing Hamlisch will be tempered by the sad news that the orchestra is bidding adieu to its president and CEO, Cathy Cahill, who is moving on to the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia to assume the same titles.

Cahill is leaving on a high note, indeed, as the philharmonic announced plans last week to transform a former firehouse at 299 Degraw St. in Cobble Hill into a permanent home, the BP Music Center.

Benefit ticket-holders will also enjoy an award ceremony and silent and live auctions.

The Brooklyn Philharmonic’s 2008 Spring Gala begins at 6:30 pm on May 12 at the Rainbow Room (30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan). Tickets are $750 and $1000. For reservations, call (718) 488-5700 or visit the Web site
