Meet your 2018 Percussion Staff!


Jocelyn Campos

Hometown/School: Somerset, TX / Somerset High School

Major: English

Classification: Sophomore

Instrument: Vibes

Hey all! I was born and raised in northern California, and when I was eleven, my family moved to Somerset, Texas; a small town about twenty minutes outside south San Antonio. I marched bass drum throughout high school, and come my first SOSA season last fall, got the hang of playing in the front ensemble on vibes. I am a proud and dedicated English major with a double concentration in creative and professional writing with hopes to become a published author in young adult fiction in the future. Besides band and music, I can talk to you about books all day long because I have such a strong passion for them. This past spring, I became a sister of Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Sorority to support all of the UTSA Music band mom needs.

Cambriege Wesley

Major: Accounting

Classification: Sophomore

Instrument: Percussion

This will be my second season with SOSA, and my first one on staff with Percussion. I joined SOSA because I love music SO much and what better college experience is there than to be in a college band?? SOSA is all about family, great music, and a fun time all-around. I’m heavily involved around campus, and I was also an Orientation Leader this past summer, so feel free to reach out to me whenever if you ever wanna talk about stuff.
