JAZZ & MORE IN SHERMAN
SHERMAN JAZZ MUSEUM
Sherman swings with a heart of jazz, beginning with the Sherman Jazz Museum - an amazing treasure trove from the height of the Big Band jazz era that "rivals the Smithsonian," according to Buddy Magazine. The museum features spectacular rooms featuring larger-than life murals, stacks of vinyl albums, vintage recording and phonograph equipment, displays of trumpets owned by famous musicians including Doc Severinsen, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis, and an array of jazz memorabilia. Live performances are scheduled periodically in the Museum's Trumpet Room. The Museum is open for tours in July 2021 on Thursdays from 1-5 p.m. Check out the Sherman Jazz Museum website to see photos, read about the Collins family and their dedication to preserving jazz history, and more! Museum is located at 201 E. Lamar St., Sherman TX, in the historic Masonic Lodge Temple (1924).
SHERMAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The Sherman Symphony Orchestra has been a vital part of the Sherman community for over fifty-five years. The Symphony creates a collective civic identity by sharing music and musical education, and it has been dedicated to providing convenient access to orchestral music since its founding. Led by Maestro Daniel Dominick, the Symphony performs in downtown Sherman's 1,300-seat Kidd-Key Auditorium.
Sherman Symphony Orchestra looks forward to welcoming audiences back in person for the 2021-2020 season. The Symphony's website has more information about the upcoming season, as well as links to the most recent series of excellent video recordings released during the COVID season of 2020-21. Many other SSO recordings can be accessed on YouTube.
