The Tilburg Byzantine Choir was founded in 1944 during the 2nd world war by the capuchin priests in the Netherlands to provide mass for Russian refugees in Tilburg.
70 years later, in 2014, the choir still exists and celebrated its 70 year jubilee. The program of performances is still fully planned with many celebrations according to the Byzantine rite, performances at western church services and concerts. Approximately 10 times a year the choir appears during a liturgy or a concert.
Since 1989 Piet Happel is the conductor of the choir. The Tilburg Byzantine Choir counts 35 singers, mixed voices female and male, and the repertoire is sung a capella. The choir is the oldest and well known Byzantine choir in The Netherlands and gave concerts in Italy, Belgium, Germany, Ukraine and Russia.
The choir made several cd's over the years and supported many charity projects, mainly in Eastern Europe.
