The Magnificat turns 20: a celebration with music and memories

“The Magnificat school was founded in June 1995. At that time there were few students, approximately 25. And then it grew, and today we have about 200 students; we went from two instruments to 10 and this year we launched a university degree. We have many projects…”

These are the words of Br. David Grenier, Director of the Magnifcat Institute of Jerusalem. The projects has also been supported by Association pro Terra Sancta all along these years, thanks to many friends and supporters.

Help the Magnificat that aims to unite the Arab and Jewish communities through the common language of music. Music encourages dialogue and also creates job opportunities.
