Columbia, SC has a weekly street market called Soda City Market. On this particular day the South Carolina Philharmonic had a special event called Conduct the Phil at Soda City. The musicians set up on the corner of Main and Hampton Streets and played for an hour while passing members of the public were free to stand on a podium and "lead." The music was beautiful as was the light, and the crowd and musicians were in a happy mood. I couldn't resist taking a few images. I have a special interest in musicians. The composition is not perfect, but I was very happy with the results.
