Sarah Chang is one of the world’s premier violinists. Since debuting with the New York Philharmonic at age 8, she has performed with the greatest orchestras and on the world's biggest stages.

She’s no stranger to Fresno audiences of course, with several prior appearances ranking among the most memorable in the recent history of the Fresno Philharmonic’s guest artists series. She returns to Central California this weekend for a concert celebrating the orchestra’s 60th anniversary. She joined us this week on Valley Edition to talk about  Max Bruch's violin concerto, (which she's performed since she was a 5-year old auditioning for Juilliard), the pressures of being an in-demand touring musician and her thoughts about performing before Fresno audiences.
