The ECCC WALL O' SOUND is composed of around 200 students who represent nearly every major and career field available at ECCC.
All band students receive scholarships for participation in the WALL O' SOUND Marching Band each fall and the Concert/Pep Band in the spring.
The WALL O' SOUND is also home to the Drum Majors, Drum Line and Front Ensemble, Centralettes dance line, Color Guard, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, ECCC Percussion Ensemble and Basketball Pep Band.
Members of the Wall O’ Sound Marching Band receive a full tuition scholarship for the fall semester. The band performs at all home football games and typically travels to one away game each year. The group also marches in select Christmas and other parades. To become a member of the Wall O’ Sound horn line or symphonic band, high school senior band students or transfer students will perform an audition for the ECCC Band Director. The audition will consist of two major scales, chromatic scale, and sight reading. If a high school senior band student participates in the ECCC Band Clinic, the East Central Mississippi Band Directors Association District Band Clinic, or makes the Mississippi Lions All-State Band, he or she will not have to audition. The audition scores will determine chair placement for the fall semester.
