The Angelica Cantanti Youth Choirs (ACYC) is a Twin Cities children's choir program dedicated to providing high-quality choral music education with excellence in performance. ACYC's four conductors are professional music educators and artists who nurture and challenge the 275 boy and girl singers in grades 2-12. The choirs perform free concerts annually at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis and the Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul.
"Our singers are honored and excited to perform at Super Bowl LII," said Elizabeth Egger, ACYC conductor, "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and they will always remember feeling proud to represent the children of the state of Minnesota."
