She was a soloist in Macon a couple years ago.  It was very strange.

She did an excellent classical recital at my synagogue some years ago.   What a talent!  Beat that, Heifetz.

Ohhh.... as someone who has absolutely no head for heights and who hated physical education at school with a vengeance, I can only admire her talents!    I'd be TERRIFIED of dropping my violin and bow.
