There are two choirs performing in the Bialowieza parish. They might be listened to in the church during celebrations and other religious events. The first one consists of senior singers, whereas the second is composed of young adults, students and pupils.
The Youth Choir was created in 1993 by Jerzy Kulik, director of the main choir at the time. From the beginning, the choir performed not only religious compositions, but as well popular folk songs from Russia, Ukraine and Byelorussia. The choir has long represented Podlasie region and orthodox cultural music in the medias. It also performed for great names of polish cultural life, as the Nobel Prize winner Czeslaw Milosz.
The choir was a constant participant at Hajnowka Orthodox Music Festival. At the 1998 edition it won a prize and the following year it was recognized the best choir in parish choirs section.
