Chang teaches at Cleveland State University, both in the music department and at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, where she earned her doctorate in law. She also has served on boards of several music education organizations.
Angelin was Chang's first solo recording, released in 2007. Prior to that, she recorded Soaring Spirit with violist Joseph de Pasquale, a frequent chamber music partner of Chang's.
