For Kyle Cox ’18, music is more than an extracurricular activity--it's his passion. Despite receiving the diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at age seven, Kyle continues to do all he can to play his euphonium and beat the odds. To this day, he baffles doctors with his ability to play an instrument, especially when his lungs function at only 30 percent capacity. Monika Blackwell visited with Kyle and his mom, Kristen ’83, about how the new Music Activities Center at Texas A&M will impact Kyle's life and help future generations of Aggie musicians.
