Ben Ledesma

Ben Ledesma is currently a third-year student of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University, and plans to use the financial security of an engineering degree to support a future music performance career. He began playing horn in the 6th grade, and has received a number of honors during his playing career in high school- including being named an All-State musician in 2011 and 2012 as well as consistently receiving “1’s” at UIL solo competitions. He played for two years with the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra.

Now entering his tenth year of horn playing, Ben is a member of the Texas A&M Wind Symphony, University Orchestra, and a brass quintet he formed with a group of peers called “Hymns on Sixth Street”. He also recently accepted an offer from the Bryan Theatre Company to fill a spot in the pit orchestra.
