Welcome to the Pacific International Children’s Choir Festival!
Now in our 16th Season, PICCFEST continues building on a legacy of extraordinary guest conductors, fabulous performances, and a roster of 120+ participating choirs that has garnered the praise of singers, their conductors and tour chaperones who call it “life-changing” and “the most amazing week of my life so far.”
PICCFEST 2013 guest conductor Henry Leck returns for his third appearance to lead the combined Festival Chorus and workshops with each individual choir. The combination of PICCFEST and the Oregon Bach Festival creates this one-of-a-kind event filled with inspiring rehearsals, at least two performances by each participating choir, performances of the combined Festival Chorus, and a welcoming environment that leaves participants asking, “When can we come back?!”
Participating Choirs for 2013 confirmed so far:
Buffalo Niagara Youth Chorus (New York)
Calgary Girls Choir (Alberta, Canada)
Glorystar Children's Chorus (Maryland)
Immaculate Heart of Mary Children's Choir (California)
Kairos Youth Choir (California)
Spokane Area Youth Choir (Washington)
Seattle Girls' Choir (Washington)
