It was a spectacular affair—beginning with the wonderful sounds of classical music and ending with a fantastic light show. The concert featured a local university marching band as well as a guest appearance from a world renowned cellist. As I listened to the symphony perform various movements, I carefully observed the conductor. Each movement by the conductor was precisely timed. Every direction to various sections of the symphony had to be meticulously arranged to ensure that every note was played exactly on cue. And yet, at the end of the magnificent concert and beautiful light show, the smoke from the fireworks wafted through the air—leaving the audience sitting in a cloudy haze.
