Parked at Hollywood & Highland and got food at CPK so parking would be validated. Always works like a charm but this time, the Dolby Theater had a show that got out the same time as the concert, so the entire garage was emptying out at once. It took us at least an hour and a half to get out -- it was a nightmare! Definitely check the Dolby Theater schedule before parking there.

Violinist SARAH CHANG is recognized the world over as one of classical music’s most captivating and gifted artists. Appearing in the music capitals of Asia, Europe, and the Americas, she has collaborated with most major orchestras and with the world’s most esteemed conductors.

As a chamber musician, Chang has collaborated with such artists as Wolfgang Sawallisch, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yefim Bronfman, Martha Argerich, Stephen Kovacevich, Yo-Yo Ma, and the late Isaac Stern.

Chang has reached a wide audience through her many television appearances, concert broadcasts, and best-selling recordings. Her numerous and varied recordings on the EMI Classics label include concertos of Tchaikovsky, Paganini, Mendelssohn, Sibelius, Strauss, and Goldmark. Her latest releases are “Fire and Ice,” an album of popular shorter works for violin and orchestra with Placido Domingo conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, and a disc of chamber music with current and former members of the Berlin Philharmonic.

Chang’s 2003/04 season in North America features appearances with the Pittsburgh Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the National Symphony. Abroad, she will tour Europe with the London Symphony and Sir Colin Davis and tour Europe and the Far East with the English Chamber Orchestra under David Stern.

Born in Philadelphia to Korean parents, Chang began violin studies at age four; within a year she had performed with several orchestras in the Philadelphia area. Her auditions at age eight for Zubin Mehta and Riccardo Muti led to immediate engagements with the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra. After completing the Juilliard School’s pre-college program, Chang enrolled at Juilliard as a college student, where she studied with the late Dorothy DeLay.
