When Sarah Chang’s bow hit her violin strings on Shostakovich’s “Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op.77” even the crickets at SPAC stopped chirping.

Under the baton of maestro Peter Oundjian, last Wednesday evening’s Philadelphia Orchestra concert reached epic proportions – especially with soloist Chang in the spotlight for one serene piece.

The program opened with Mozart’s “Overture to ‘The Magic Flute,’ K.620,” which led magnificently into the Shostakovich piece. However, it was Chang who held the audience spellbound.
