GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – The Grand Rapids Symphony is well known for showing off the very best musical talent that West Michigan has to offer. The symphony also has the habit of attracting world class musicians, and one of those musicians is here with us today. We’re very happy to have Sarah Chang join us on eightWest.

Violinist Sarah Chang is just 36 years old, but she’s been an international superstar for nearly three decades. The 2011 St. Cecilia Music Center Great Artist returns to open Grand Rapids Symphony’s 2017-18 season.
