Stevenson chosen for all-state band
Ben Stevenson, a member of the La Vernia High School Band, has been selected as a member of the 2011 Association of Texas Small School Bands All-State Band. The band will present a concert at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 12, in the Lila Cockrell Theatre of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio.
He was chosen for this honor in competitive auditions held this year across the state at region and area levels. Ben is a student of Ian Nutting and plays the oboe at school under the direction of Stacy Clark, who is a member of the Association of Texas Small School Bands, a 1000-member group of band directors in class 1A, 2A, and 3A high schools in Texas. This is his first time to perform as a member of the all-state band.
His other interests at school include cross country and UIL social studies. He is also active in church activities at the First Baptist Church in La Vernia. He is the son of Tim and Harriet Stevenson of La Vernia.
