Katharine McPhee was the special guest at Friday’s “Pops on the Heights,” a concert by the Boston Pops Orchestra, conducted by Keith Lockhart, and the University Chorale of Boston College, under the direction of John Finney. The annual show at Conte Forum benefits financial aid at BC. An “American Idol” alum, McPhee is no stranger to Boston, having studied at Boston Conservatory for three semesters before heading to LA to find fame and fortune. When she’s not making music, McPhee’s been acting, most recently on the NBC show “Smash.”
