Bookmark and Share

Kent Nagano is set to remain as music director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra until 2020 after agreeing to a contract extension. A California native, Nagano, 61, has held the position since 2006 and said "It is very, very moving, because of the depth of the honour, to be asked to carry this great institution on into the future. I feel that what we've accomplished since 2006, as impressive as it is, really reflects on the community of Montreal and the orchestra itself. There is something happening here, in Montreal, in Quebec. It's a very interesting time. The dynamics and the energy here are exceptional. And I speak as someone who travels the world."  READ THE FULL CBC ARTICLE.
