Sarah Chang (born December 10, 1980) is an American violinist of Korean heritage. She asked her parents for a violin at the age of 3 and auditioned for New York's Juilliard School at 5. She was recognized as a child prodigy and, when she was 8, was given the opportunity to audition with such names as Zubin Mehta and Riccardo Muti, who were working, respectively, with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Both gave her immediate engagements, and she recorded her debut album at the age of 9.

Yehudi Menuhin has called her "the most wonderful, the most perfect, the most ideal violinist I have ever heard".

Awards Sarah Chang has received include:

* Avery Fisher Career Grant (1992)
* Gramophone Magazine "Young Artist of the Year" (1993)
* "Newcomer of the Year" at the International Classical Music Awards (1994)
