The 24th Birthday Gala, entitled “Musical Fireworks,” will honor Macy’s and orchestra patrons Paula and Tom McInerney, and feature a tribute to Neil Sedaka on the 50th anniversary of his start in show business. The gala begins at 7PM.

  1. JLY can add another stellar performance to his career. This is one of the main reasons I extended my trip to NY this past weekend. The Pops Birthday Gala is such a wonderful event showcasing a wide variety of performers. It was nice to see at least one JB at Carnegie Hall again…(the “Boys” sang last year). Thanks for working on your day off. It was truly appreciated!
