Audrey Tang is 21-year-old transfer student from Shanghai, China who picked up the violin when she was four. In her 17-year career playing the violin in China, Tang has not only played in multiple orchestras, but has taught violin classes for many years. Tang moved to America to further her music education, but ended up switching to major in violin performance.

“My favorite part about studying music at CSUN is the amount of freedom I have to play what I want,” said Tang. “In Shanghai, it was much stricter and you have less freedom to actually play what interests you.”
