Fifth-graders face the music at Sherman symphony


SHERMAN -- More than 1,000 elementary school students in Texoma faced the music Thursday at a children's concert by the Sherman Symphony Orchestra.

Fifth-graders from Whitewright, Howe, Pottsboro, Tioga, Collinsville, Sadler, Southmayd and Sherman were bused in for the performance.

It was at the Kidd-Key Auditorium in Sherman.

Students were taught about the different instruments and some even had the chance to take over conducting.

"This is fundamental because art is a really important part of people's lives. We do recreation and we need to have jobs and we go to play games and things but art is the kind of thing that feeds people's souls," conductor Daniel Dominick said.

"I was one of these kids in 5th grade, I saw the orchestra and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing'," cellist Lydia Crannell said.

The Sherman Symphony Orchestra has put on the performance for students for the past twelve years.
