ECCC Wall O’ Sound Band to ‘Rock’ in 2014

Another entertaining halftime performance is scheduled by the East Central Community College Wall O’ Sound Marching Band during the 2014 football season, according to Hunter Corhern, now in his third year as director of bands.

Corhern said the 175 talented musicians will perform several selections by the rock band Queen, as part of this year’s halftime show, titled “We Will Rock You.”

“This show has been a dream of [Assistant Director of Bands] Ed Girling for many years, but he has waited until we had the right group to put it together,” Corhern said. “Last fall, based on returning members and recruitment numbers, we realized that it was finally time to bring the show to life!”

The Wall O’ Sound Marching Band made its 2014 debut during halftime of the Warrior’s home opener with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Thursday, Sept. 11 at Bailey Stadium.

Song selections include We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and We Are the Champions, among other famous Queen hits.

The Wall O’ Sound is led on the field by drum majors Katie Sanford of Decatur, Sarah Hall of Philadelphia, and Louise Berryhill and Danielle Horne, both of Union.
