Every year, the Italian Embassy in Israel organizes a Christmas party for Italian residents in Israel. The party is held in the breathtaking location of the ambassador's residence in Ramat Gan. This year the Magnificat was asked to provide the musical entertainment and so the Vocal Ensemble found itself performing Christmas classics in front of a prestigious audience composed by Ambassador Gianluigi Benedetti, dignitaries and representatives of the Italian community in Israel.
The Vocal Ensemble is composed by Fr. Alberto Pari, the director of the Magnificat, Giuliana Mettini, vice director, Eleonora Lue' and Tareq Wahba, both enrolled in the academic program of the Magnificat. Accompanying them at the piano was Vered Michali.
The Vocal Ensemble proposed evergreen classics like Minuit, Chrétiens, Amazing Grace and Adeste Fideles.
The event included a festive toast by the Ambassador.
