Kudos to alum Yuga Cohler! Yuga first appeared on From the Top in 2004, and has since gone on to achieve great success as the conductor of the Young Musicians F...oundation Debut Orchestra of Los Angeles.
Last week, The Foundation of Arturo Toscanini in Parma, Italy, awarded Yuga the Paolo Vero Orchestra Prize at the prestigious Arturo Toscanini Conducting Competition. Yuga was selected by a vote of the Filarmonica Toscanini, and receives a 5,000 Euro monetary prize as well as the opportunity to conduct the Filarmonica Toscanini in a March concert commemorating the 150th anniversary of Arturo Toscanini’s birth. Congratulations, Yuga!
