Maestro Kent Nagano and producer in attendance

As a child, Kent Nagano was touched and influenced by the passion of a music lover. This passion has guided his entire life, and he wants to transmit it to his audience, wherever he is, by constantly reaching his hand. The documentary The Mission of Kent Nagano retraces his founding childhood in Morro Bay, explores the preschool program “Music to children” that he initiated in a public school, Montreal North, and follows him to Hamburg where he directs La Flûte enchantée, accompanied by young amateur musicians with the same rigor as the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra at the G20, in front of heads of state from around the world.
