Here's a fun article about someone who combined her talents as a violinist and a gymnast. Enjoy!
I know her! She's an excellent violinist.
A flexible young gymnast called Martin
Hangs upside down playing the violin
Splitting to extremity
A picture of femininity
When her sacro-iliac touches her cranium
She was a soloist in Macon a couple years ago. It was very strange.
Here she is on youtube
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.
