Violinist Sarah Chang is a prolific prizewinner in Australia’s leading strings competitions including winner of the 2018 Concerto Competition of the Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic.
A student in the Sydney Conservatorium’s Rising Stars program since 2010 and a music scholarship student at Abbotsleigh School through her high school years Sarah recently topped the state in HSC Music, performing at the Sydney Opera House for HSC Encore.
