Justin Yamaguchi (I) Named National YoungArts Winner

For his skills on violin, senior Justin Yamaguchi has been named a 2024 National YoungArts Winner in Classical Music Violin. As described on the YoungArts website, “Winners are chosen for their caliber of artistic achievement by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process.”

For more than four decades, the YoungArts Award has been recognizing talent and hard work like Justin’s: artistic skill that demonstrates exceptional technique; a strong sense of artistry; and a depth of thinking and performance that exceeds the level of peers at this career stage.

As part of the award, in addition to a cash prize, Justin is eligible to participate in one of two in-person interdisciplinary programs held in Los Angeles or New York City this spring, as well as virtual professional development seminars with fellow YoungArts award winners.
