The Slavic Byzantine Choir of Zwolle

The Slavic Byzantine Choir of Zwolle (Slavisch Byzantijns Koor Zwolle in Dutch) sings liturgical music from the Russian Byzantine tradition, as well as music from modern and classical Slavic composers and folk songs. The choir performs without instruments. The choir seeks an authentic interpretation of the music, exposing both its full complexity and its emotion.

The choir was founded in 1980 by the famous baritone and Don Kozakken member Michail Minsky. The choir has performed with internationally renowned choirs, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Its annual Advent Concert has become a regional tradition.
