The concert program offered musical selections from Hope's extensive career that spanned decades of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, film and television, such as "Ballin' the Jack" and "Thanks for the Memory" - as well as works of his contemporaries whom have been inspired by his iconic talent. Reineke and The New York Pops were also joined on stage by the singers of The Camp Broadway Kids and the West Point Glee Club.

The evening's honorees were The Bob Hope Legacy, an organization founded by Linda Hope to preserve her father's memory, and Interpublic Group, Michael I. Roth, Chairman and CEO, in thanks for their continued support of The New York Pops.
