September Goes Out with a "Pop"

This past weekend saw the 10th annual "Pops on the Heights," featuring performances by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and conductor Bruce Hangen (above), with guest vocalists Lisa Vroman and Howard McGillin (below), who sang a medley of Broadway show tunes, as well as the Boston College University Chorale and other student groups. The sold-out concert also served as a kick-off for Parents Weekend, which included an assortment of events offered to familiarize parents and families with the University. More photos here.
