The Pacific Southwest Intercollegiate Choral Association 


Entering Our 90th Year of Choral Excellence and Collaboration!

Welcome to the PSICA Home Page!


The Pacific Southwest Intercollegiate Choral Association was founded in 1922 by the California Institute of Technology, Pomona College and Redlands College. Initially the association was comprised of separate men's and women's choruses until sometime in the mid 1940's when mixed voice choruses became the norm. Today the Pacific Southwest Intercollegiate Choral Association has thirteen member institutions. Each school is usually represented by its largest mixed-voice concert choir, and each institution rotates as annual host of the spring PSICA Choral Festival.
