SHERMAN, TX -- An evening of jazz put on by the Sherman Museum Thursday night attracted quite a few people as the Sherman High School Jazz band played some great music.

"We've invited the Sherman High School Jazz Ensemble to come out and entertain us after our business meeting" says Dan Steelman, Executive Director of the Sherman Museum.

The museum's annual membership meeting coincided with the event.

"We are so excited we are having our membership meeting this year and we have a beautiful jazz museum exhibit tonight that was loaned to us and we are just thrilled to death, the sun came out and its going to be a beautiful day," explains Bea Harmon, President of the Sherman Museum Trustee Board. 

At the meeting, an award was given to Michael Cuthbertson II for Volunteer of the Year.

The Sherman Museum has been displaying the jazz exhibit since January.

"We are happy to have it cause Bill Collins, founder of the Sherman Jazz Museum, they are actually right now doing some renovations to their building and they were kind enough to allow us to display some of there artifacts while they had the building closed and doing their renovations," explains Steelman.

The exhibit displays horns from some of the greats in jazz music.

"We have horns from Sammy Davis Jr., from Danny Davis, from Al Hirt, from Maynard Ferguson," says Steelman.

You can even learn about Buddy Tate, a jazz artist born in Sherman, TX.

Jazz music was certainly the focus of the night as the people of Texoma came out to enjoy some great jazz.

"Those young people do such a great job and everyone loves the music," explains Harmon.
