CLEVELAND — Students attending the twelfth annual DMI Summer Camp, hosted by the DMI Entertainment Industry Studies program at Delta State University, will present a musical showcase on Saturday, July 14 at 6:00 pm in Jobe Hall on the campus of Delta State University in Cleveland, MS. The showcase will include cover songs by the camp band along with original songs written by the camp’s songwriting students.
Sixteen high school students representing Georgia, Virginia, and multiple counties in the state of Mississippi, are participating in the 2018 DMI Summer Camp. The intensive six-day residential camp experience explores four entertainment industry tracks, including performance, audio engineering, digital media, and songwriting, culminating in a recording session at the DMI studios and the final showcase performance.
Instructors for the DMI Summer Camp are made up of DMI faculty members, entertainment industry majors and recent graduates from the DMI program.
“The DMI Summer Camp offers a great opportunity for young aspiring musicians, engineers, and songwriters to develop and showcase their talents by empowering them to each find their own ‘voice.’ I can report that there is no shortage of talent in Mississippi,” says Tricia Walker, Director of the DMI.
The 6:00 pm concert on Saturday evening is free and open to the public. Supporters of these talented young musicians are encouraged to attend and enjoy the show.
