MacGregor honors Rockford men’s a cappella group

State Rep. Peter MacGregor was joined in Lansing on Wednesday, July 18, by the Rockford High School men’s a cappella group, the Rockford Aces.

The Rockford Aces are a 12-voice extracurricular men’s a cappella group that perform a wide repertoire, including traditional and contemporary choral, vocal jazz, barbershop, doo-wop, and contemporary a cappella. The group competed in the World Choir Games against more than 350 choirs from 64 countries this month in Cincinnati, where they earned two silver medals.

MacGregor recognized them on the House floor and congratulated them on their achievement at the World Choir Games. The group also performed in the Capitol Rotunda Wednesday morning.

“The Rockford Aces are incredibly talented and I’m extremely proud of their achievements locally and at the World Choir Games,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “These boys have represented our community well and I’m excited to see them go far with their academic and musical futures.”

The group was founded in 2008, and was named as one of the finest high school choral ensembles in Michigan in 2010. The Aces actively performs at school, community and professional sporting events in West Michigan.

The Rockford Aces made the trip to Lansing with choir director Jed Scott.
