Violinist Sarah Chang to Hold Concert in Seoul
Violinist Sarah Chang is set to hold a concert in Seoul on Tuesday. The concert will be held at the Seoul Arts Center to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its opening.
The venue is special to Chang, as it is where she first performed in Korea at the tender age of 10, a few weeks after her sensational debut with the New York Philharmonic.
"The concert venue feels like home to me," Chang said at a press event on Monday. "It's been a pleasure for me to prepare for the concert with 17 instrumentalists."
Chang was born in Philadelphia and began learning the violin when she was four. The child prodigy was accepted to the Juilliard School in the following year and studied under renowned violin instructor Dorothy DeLay. Chang played as a soloist with many of the world's major orchestras in the 1990s and 2000s.
"I always find new things every time I play and learn a lot, no matter how many times I play the same pieces. It is also good to play with other instrumentalists, who make me better while giving me an inspiration."
