Roanoke College student singers will showcase their a cappella talents during the College’s annual A Cappella Carnivella, a concert this Friday at 7 p.m. in the Bast Gym.

This is one of the biggest a cappella events of the year at Roanoke. This year’s show features Mainstreet, an all-female singing group that started in 1998, Looking for an Echo, an all-male group established in 1996, and the RoaNotes, a co-ed group founded in 2011.

In addition to these Roanoke a cappella groups, Christopher Newport University’s Trebled Youth will also be making its Roanoke College debut.

All of the event proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity. Past A Cappella Carnivella concerts have raised up to $1,500 for Habitat, and this year’s organizers hope to continue that trend both through ticket sales and prizes raffled during the concert.

The event is open to students and to the public. Tickets are $5 with a Roanoke ID and $7 for the general public. The prizes for various gift cards, t-shirts and prize packs will be offered in a raffle.

Come out and support your singing Maroons and CNU Captains.
