Budding composers win money for their schools

July 13, 2011

Stevens HS musician Emily Rubio, daughter of Stevens HS band director Robert Rubio, placed second in the 2011 Texas State Farm Original Score Contest with her original composition, "A Texas Portrait." For her efforts, Stevens HS will receive a cash prize of $15,000 to be used toward further development of computer lab applications specifically designed for use by all music students and those interested in advanced music composition. In addition, a student from O'Connor HS and a group of students from Clark HS received honorable mentions in the competition, bringing home $500 cash prizes for their schools.
