Echo is an acclaimed vocal ensemble that stemmed from the Genesis Sixteen Young Artist scheme. Described as “sparkling, poised and subtly powerful” (The Arts Desk) they made their St John’s Smith Square debut in 2017, and have since performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, as Ensemble-in-Residence at Ryedale Festival and live on BBC Radio 3.
The group has quickly developed a reputation for imaginative programming and multi-disciplinary collaborations, including with poet Roger McGough, composer James MacMillan, visual artist Polly Apfelbaum and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Echo aims to explore the full range of what ensemble singing can achieve, including improvisation and audience-immersive concert experiences, whilst achieving musical excellence at all times.
Most recently, Echo toured the UK with Already Gone, a performance that saw the group take to the stage at Kings Place, London and Stoller Hall, Manchester, alongside a live BBC radio broadcast. The tour featured four world premieres from emerging composers, and was supported by RVW Trust, the Golsoncott Foundation and the Genesis Foundation.
