Sarah Chang
(born December 10, 1980, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a Korean American violin virtuoso.

Early life

Sarah Chang was born of Korean parents, Min-Soo Chang, her father, a violinist, and Myoung Jun Chang, her mother, a
composer. Her parents had moved to the United States in 1979 so that Sarah's father could study for an advanced music degree at Temple University. Her mother was taking composition classes at the University of Pennsylvania. She has a younger brother named Michael.

Sarah liked to play one-finger melodies on the piano at the age of 3 but, possibly taking a cue from her father, asked her
parents for a violin. She began practicing with a 1/16-sized violin which was given as a birthday gift, at age 4 and auditioned for the Juilliard School at age 6 by playing the Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor. She was admitted into the studio of the late Dorothy DeLay, violin teacher to some of the world's great violinists including Itzhak
Perlman
, Midori Goto, Anne Akiko Meyers, Gil Shaham, Shlomo Mintz and many others, including Chang's father Min-Soo Chang. She was also taught by Hyo Kang, a former student and assistant of DeLay. She continued attending grade school in the Philadelphia area while studying music on Saturdays at Juilliard.

Chang was recognized as a child prodigy, and when she was 8 years old she was given the opportunity to audition with
such names as Zubin Mehta and Riccardo Muti, who were working, respectively, with the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Both gave her immediate engagements.

She recorded her first album, Debut, in 1991 at age 10; it was released by EMI Classics August 18, 1992. It quickly reached the Billboard chart of classical best-sellers


Awards
Sarah Chang has received a number of awards, including:
