Longer season, shorter name.

After seventeen years as Pacific International Children’s Choir Festival, we made some big changes in 2015: PICCFEST is now –

Under the new name PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL CHORAL FESTIVALS, we’ve made room for more festivals, more choirs and more guest artists like the Yellowjackets and moira smiley & VOCO.  Our line-up now features something for everyone with four distinct events on a rotating schedule of two festivals each season.

What hasn’t changed is the extraordinary attention to musical excellence, hospitality, community and our partnership with the world-renowned Oregon Bach Festival … all things that make picfest the gold standard for noncompetitive choral festivals!

picfest has established a standard of excellence in every aspect of festival presentation. While aspiring to high artistic standards, it’s clear that philosophy of this organization uplifts the individual experiences of the singers and their directors. It is always a pleasure to return to picfest, a place I know has the right priorities for all participants.  – Sandra Snow
