PSALTIKON is a Boston-based choir focused on preserving the rich musical heritage of Greece, and especially Byzantine chant. Its director, Spyridon Antonopoulos, completed studies at Brown, New England Conservatory, and most recently, a doctorate at City University London. Psaltikon refers to the medieval chant book for soloists which contained the most virtuosic chants from the now-extinct Asmatic Rite of Constantinople.
