Email: echo@roanoke.edu
This a cappella men's singing group was founded in 1996. Why are they looking for an echo? There is a sound that all choirs strive for, a moment when all voices blend and sound as one, a single instant of perfection when sound becomes something more than sound. Each member of the group is a firm believer in this sound and in every performance, they search for it.
