The Official Choir of the Women in Byzantine Music Worldwide Association “Psaltries” was established in Greece on December 2017, four years after the Association’s foundation, by Nektaria Karantzi, the prominent Greek vocalist of the sacred music who is acclaimed as one of the most important female voices in byzantine chant worldwide.
The “Psaltries” Choir specializes and is devoted to the dissemination and study of Byzantine chanting, highlighting the beauty of the female approach to the Byzantine Hymns.
The choir has performed, under the direction of its choirmaster Nektaria Karantzi, in concerts in Athens and has collaborated with internationally renowned Greek musicians as Vassilis Tsabropoulos and Chronis Aidonides.
