"Conduct the Phil" visits S.C. DJJ

On Thursday, Nov. 17, around 20 S.C. Phil musicians treated children at the S.C. Dept. of Juvenile Justice to a Conduct the Phil concert.

For an hour, children and some staffers at the facility off Broad River Road in Columbia got to take turns behind the podium conducting professional musicians. And in one special case: Jacob, a student musician at DJJ, was able to play violin for a couple pieces with Philharmonic musicians.

Watch this feel-good story from WACH-TV.
