The Sound of Today Marching Band 

The Sound of Today is one of the most recognized college bands in the United States. The SOT performs at all home football games and travels to select out-of-town games with the ULM Warhawks football team. Membership is comprised of virtually every academic program on campus. SOT members enjoy financial assistance through the Band Talent Grant program. The amount of the talent grant is determined by an audition, the student's accomplishments prior to ULM, their major field of study, and the needs of the Music Program. Participation in the Sound of Today requires no audition. Interested students should complete the Intent to Participate form. Direct questions to Dr. Allen Parrish at 318.342.1580 or parrish@ulm.edu.
