US Premiere of

Magnificat

by Kim André Arnesen

Manhattan Girls Chorus performed the US premiere of Magnificat by Kim André Arnesen. Many of the girls shared that they believed that preparing for and performing this deeply spiritual and moving work was a life-changing experience for them. We were honored to be joined by renowned soprano, Camille Zamora. Named one of CNN’s Most Intriguing People, Camille balances a vibrant career of opera, recital and concert performances. In collaboration with artists ranging from Plácido Domingo to Yo-Yo Ma to Sting, Camille has garnered acclaim for her “dramatic and nuanced” (The New York Times) interpretations of repertoire ranging from Mozart to tango..
