Blugold Spotlight features Nobuyoshi Yasuda

| Jesse Yang (story + video)

He’s a conductor, violinist and professor at UW-Eau Claire, and he’s passionate about reading music scores, too.

Nobuyoshi Yasuda, professor of music and director of UW-Eau Claire's University Orchestra, knew at a young age he was destined to turn his love for the violin into a lifelong professional career.

For Yasuda, hard work paid off. His dream to conduct his own orchestra became true after joining the Blugold family in 1991.

Whether it’s teaching one student or directing an orchestra of more than 60 musicians, Yasuda loves teaching, learning and sharing his knowledge with students.
