Show of the week » You know the shy girl who used to be in your high-school orchestra? The one playing piano? Imagine she grew up, got a computer-science degree at Stanford, worked as a programmer for Cisco Systems for two years, then devoted herself to her music and became a rock star. That’s Vienna Teng, the 35-year-old singer-songwriter who self-labels her music as "chamber folk" — but with elements of classical, folk, jazz, pop and Americana mixed in. The California-born Teng (real name: Cynthia Yih Shih) is touring in support of her fifth album, "Aims," which features percussionist Alex Wong — who is also her opening act.
