Magnificat Institute

The ‘Magnificat’ Institute of Jerusalem is a School of Music erected in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem in 1995 by decision of the Chapter of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land.

The only one of its kind, it promotes the study of music, offering a professional preparation, but, above all, a place of dialogue and of education in peaceful coexistence, where children and young Muslim, Christian, and Jewish youths study together united by their common passion for the art of music.

The Magnificat Institute also has responsibility for liturgical services in the Holy Places (such as the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem and the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem). The Institute, moreover, offers high-level, academic teaching which allows students to attain European university diplomas and awards.

The Magnificat constitutes a little miracle because, from its birth, which took place more than 16 years ago, it has grown and lives, essentially, thanks to generous outside donors: The Friends of the Magnificat Association, through the organization of concerts, musical productions of students and their professors and of other ways of fostering the mission of the school, is occupied with its development and economic well-being.

At the moment, the school hosts over 200 young students and about 18 professors, with growing success. The Magnificat teaches: Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, Organ, Singing, Guitar, Composition, Flute, Percussion, Choir, Solfeggio, and the History of Music.
