Surround Sound is an all-male a cappella group at RIT that focuses on a mix of barbershop and contemporary arrangements. The group began in 2001 as somewhat of a pick-up group known as Random Acts of Music, or RAM. In 2002 they changed their focus, and became an organized a cappella group known as Surround Sound.
