The Loveland Stage Company has awarded its 2020 Scholarship Winner!
Jett Stevens, a 2020 Loveland High School graduate, is the recipient of this year’s $1000 Loveland Stage Company Creative Arts Scholarship. Jett will be attending the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music, studying Percussion Performance. His ultimate goal is to audition for and play in philharmonics/orchestras around the country and then retire to teach at a university.
Jett has been a member of many performing groups at the high school, including 4 years in the marching band and serving as section leader for the drumline, and 4 years in Encore, the band that accompanies the show choir performers. He is a Mallet Madness alum and has played with the LHS symphonic band, jazz studies ensemble, and string orchestra at different times during his high school years. He represented the high school for 4 years in the OMEA District 14 Honor Jazz band and the 2-time Cappies award-winning orchestra for the productions of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Drowsy Chaperone.
Jett has been selected as a member of the All American Marching Band which will participate in the 2021 Rose Bowl Parade, proving his desire to be part of new opportunities and continually being challenged by new music and situations.
If Jett looks familiar but you don’t attend high school music performances, maybe you have seen him perform in the P&G Big Band, at Epiphany United Methodist Church, Christmas in Loveland, or with East Side Players summer performances. You also might have seen him around town working at Loveland Canoe and Kayak or on the farm at Blooms and Berries.
Jett considers music his second language. What inspires him and draws him to this art form is “the intricacies, the musicianship, the style, the dynamics, and all of the pin-pointed and tedious work hours to make a few black ink notes on a piece of paper appear and come to life.”
Best of luck and congratulations, Jett!
