About Us

Founded in 1997, Pacific International Concert Artists, Inc. (PICA) is a non-profit, performing arts organization dedicated to presenting chamber music concerts in distinctive and intimate venues.  Acting as ambassadors, we bring together professional musicians from diverse musical backgrounds and geographic regions to acquaint audiences with a wide range of the music literature.   Our featured guest artists have come from New York, Minnesota, Virginia, Connecticut, Oregon, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Japan and Brisbane, Australia.

Our programs have featured violin/piano duos, string duos, trios, quartets, sextets and octets, clarinet quintets, oboe quartets, music for piano and strings, harp and strings, and other mixed combinations of instruments.   A wide range of repertoire has been performed including the music of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Bartok, Gershwin, Puccini, Kodály, Debussy, Ravel and Richard Strauss.  In 1999 we were privileged to commission and present the world premier of a string quartet by award-winning composer and University of Hawaii professor Donald Reid Womack.  His music has been performed by the Honolulu Symphony and other orchestras on the mainland and abroad. 

The performances are preceded by musical and historical commentaries by the Artistic Director and musicians.  This ultimately affords the audience a better understanding of the music and greater appreciation for the performance.  Following the concert, the audience is invited to meet and interact with the musicians and one another at a reception.

PICA also supports youth outreach programs, with its musicians performing for children in public schools and youth-related social service organizations.  The PICA Chamber Players, a string quartet of professional musicians, has performed numerous holiday concerts for the children and teenagers at Hale Kipa and Kids Hurt Too.        

Through our chamber music concerts and youth outreach programs we seek to foster a greater sense of community and appreciation for our island home.



Mission Statement

To educate the general public in music and other art forms.  The means of providing such education includes, but is not limited to, public performances of music and other art forms.
