Welcome our new Music Director, Danko Druško!

The Board and staff of YMMC are excited to announce the successful conclusion of the Music Director search!

We have invited a very accomplished and highly regarded conductor, Danko Druško, to work with our students starting this August. 

Danko Druško was born and raised in Germany. He speaks German, English and Croatian fluently. He holds a DMA in conducting from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. He was a fellow competitor of Farkhad Khudyev at the Solti conducting competition, and was a finalist in this event. Danko’s full biography can be found on his website:

We invite you all to see Danko and the YMMC student musicians in action this year on Sunday November 3, 2019, March 1st, 2020, and May 3, 2020. 

We look forward to introducing you to Danko, and hope you will join us in giving him a warm welcome to Monterey!
