Fireside Chat

President William LaForge hosts this edition of fireside chat from the Delta Music Institute summer camp.

Delta State continues to hosts a diverse range of summer camps, from art and music to athletics and recreation.

“Our Delta Music Institute was recently filled with high school students attending a six-day interactive experience to explore three entertainment industry career tracks, which include audio engineering, band performance, and songwriting.”

This is the ninth year for the DMI Camp–attracting youth from states as close as Alabama and as far as Minnesota, Pennsylvania and California. The camp concluded with a recording and showcase performance in the Bologna Performing Arts Center where campers received the full experience of being on stage.

Amber Foster, an instructor for the camp and current Delta Music Institute student tells the audience about her experience as a counselor and how the experience gained as an instructor aids in coursework in the DMI program.

Also joining is the chat is DMI camper Anna Vaughn Stewart to share why she chose to come to DMI’s summer camps and what has been her favorite part about being here.

“The quality of programming offered during the summer and throughout the academic year supports our standard of excellence as a regional university of national distinction.”
