Bob Chilcott reflects on picfest:

I always look forward to my time at picfest as one of those rare events that keeps surpassing the last high point.  Always something fresh and innovative musically.

A collaborative spirit is at the heart of what makes this gathering so alive with possibilities.

The festival staff makes sure the choirs come well prepared, so we can get right to work making music and having a great time together.

It’s truly a premium choir festival! The music is exciting, the schedule is rich with opportunities for artistic growth and building friendship, and Eugene is a lovely setting.

Absolutely brilliant!  Bravo!
