Kids have been attending summer camps all over South Texas, but we found one that's steeped deep in tradition and passion. Producer Cynthia Munoz says this camp's name explains what it's all about.

"The Summer Mariachi Extravaganza Vocal Camp."

She puts on a high school aged Mariachi Extravaganza every fall, and this singing boot camp is geared to prepare students for that event.

"Nearly 20 cities are represented here with about 50 students that are participating in the summer camp."

A local arts organization is throwing a party and with the lineup of music, artists and events lined up, it should be interesting. The organization is Centro Cultural Aztlan and Malena Gonzalez-Cid runs it.

"We're a non-profit cultural arts agency that is dedicated to promoting and preserving our local culture and our local heritage."

Artpace

Much to do on Father's Day weekend in San Antonio. First off tonight head downtown. "It's the kickoff to our Rooftop Jazz series this year." That Artpace's Scott Williams and the rooftop is the 3rd floor roof of Artpace's downtown art museum where on Friday, June 17th, you can hear jazz.

Monday is a significant day, especially in a place like San Antonio.  And there's no one better to explain why than Urban 15's Catherine Cisneros.

"Monday is the summer solstice."

The solstice marks the longest day of the year, but to understand why it's important to Urban 15, you need some back story, which is centered at San Antonio International Airport.

A new Attic Rep production at the Tobin's Carlos Alvarez Theater is getting a lot of attention. Playwright Roberto Prestigiacomo says there was a person and an event that spawned his production titled "14." 

"'14' is inspired by my daughter, who is 14."

The event that spurred the production was the terrorist attacks of 2001.   

"After 9-11 life got more dangerous for everybody, especially for our younger generation."
