Beethoven's Ode to Joy, the final movement of the composer's Ninth Symphony, is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written. Sandra Gal and Hee Young Park are two of the greatest golfers in the world, and two people who, as is obvious from their social media accounts, love life. They are full of joy.
What better pairing than these two buddies combining their talents - Sandra on violin, "Rocket" on piano - on Ode to Joy?
This performance by what Sandra called the "Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra" took place in Gal's home recently, on the night of dinner that Sandra prepared for friends. Sandra posted a bit of their recital in two videos on Instagram:
Roll over, Beethoven, and tell Tchaikovsky the news: These girls rock!
Sandra shared on her Facebook page a preview of the dinner she was cooking this night:
And a photo of herself, Hee Young and Anna Nordqvist dining together:
Hey, wait a minute: Doesn't Anna play an instrument, too? Yes, she does, the violin. So why wasn't Anna taking part in the performance above, too? This tweet by Anna (retweeted by Gal) might provide a clue:
Oh boy... its been a while... more so a couple years since my violin days. Belong in the garage again... ☺️ pic.twitter.com/b7pxGbvVEr— Anna Nordqvist (@ANordqvist) February 18, 2015
But maybe, if Anna practices, then the next time we see the Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra it will include Nordqvist, too.
