Our conductor is Béni Csillag. Our accompanist is Mark van Platen (musician/composer, winner of the Gouden Kalf 2004).
Each year the choir performs 3-5 concerts, or series of concerts, together with a professional orchestra and soloists. Since 1948 the PPK has performed J. S. Bach’s Matthew Passion in Eindhoven together with the professional orchestra Philharmonie Zuidnederland (previously Het Brabants Orkest) in the Frits Philips Muziekgebouw: https://www.muziekgebouweindhoven.nl/
In addition to our regular performances of the Matthew passion, the choir regularly performs in concert hall and churches throughout the Netherlands. Recent concerts have included performances in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Tivoli Vredenburg Utrecht, as well as concerts in Maastricht, Delft, Zwolle, Apeldoorn, Breda, Den Bosch, Sittard, Roermond, Veghel, Cuijk, Veldhoven, and of course Eindhoven.

We rehearse every Tuesday at the Christiaan Huygens College, Rachmaninowlaan 2, 5653 AT, Eindhoven, (https://www.philipskoor.nl/repetitie-locatie/) from 1945 to 2215 hrs. Each rehearsal begins with some voice exercises and there is a break between 2100 and 2115 hrs when coffee and tea is available. Once a month the bar is open after the rehearsal for a drink. Three or four times a year we also have a study day. This is normally on a Saturday and is often followed by an informal social event or dinner.
