Dixie Gray Band Camp Coming Up In August

It’s a sign for many area students the summer break will soon be coming to an end. Area high school music teachers are planning band camps for their high school’s bands and Mexico is no exception. Band Director Robert Cortez says this year’s Dixie Grays Band Camp will kick off on Monday, August 6th and go through Friday, August 10th. Cortez says all band members need to attend this year’s camp and each day, students will practice the music they will play at Mexico High School football and basketball games. This year, the band will focus on the music of the rock group, Styx. A final band camp performance of the entire band will be held the Friday afternoon of the week at 2:00. A full look at the schedule is available at the band’s website, which is www.mrcortez.weekly.com.
