Seven Grammy nominations! “In a world of constant and ever-quickening change, it's comforting to know that some things remain invariable, such as the abiding excellence of UNT's One O'Clock Lab Band.” – Jack Bowers, All-About-Jazz. The highest of nine peer bands at the first institution in the US to offer a degree in Jazz Studies back in 1947 (two decades ahead of the next), the One O’Clock Lab Band has maintained its solid status as one of the top – and hottest! – university jazz ensembles in the nation. And the world, where its tours have taken it to Australia, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, Thailand and The Netherlands.Alan Baylock, leader of the Alan Baylock Jazz Orchestra and chief arranger for The Airmen of Note jazz ensemble of Washington D.C., directs. Sure to be an electrifying event!

Red River Songwriters
Americana Folk
Each Community Series-Texoma Concerts Season Subscription comes with a ticket to Craft the Night Away, Sherman's premier craft beer and entertainment event! Red River Songwriters: Walt Wilkins, Su..
8:00 PM

Special return engagement! “Though their individual talents are specific and unique, when together, they bring out the best in one another ... You can hear the proverbial pin drop and possibly a handful of teardrops slide down cheeks.” – Thomas D. Mooney, Lonestar Music Magazine. Four years ago, a group of like-minded songwriters decided to band together and start a small music festival in Red River, New Mexico. Equal parts scenic and sonic, The Red River Songwriters’ Festival has quickly grown into one of the premier events in the southwest for fans of storytelling troubadours. The core group – Susan Gibson, Drew Kennedy, Kelley Mickwee, Josh Grider, and Brandy Zdan -recognized the potential in creating an event geared toward the discerning lover of lyric and melody, and the rest is history! Community Series is delighted to welcome the Red River Songwriters back to Sherman to captivate and inspire you.

Susan Lamb Cook
Chamber Recital
7:30 PM

Acclaimed throughout Europe, the Far East and the United States, master cellist and educator Susan Lamb Cook concludes her Mary Wright Visiting Artist residency at Austin College by joining faculty members Ricky Duhaime (clarinet) and John McGinn (piano) in a recital of Classical and Romantic German masterworks. The evening begins with the highly evocative Kol Nidrei, op. 47 for cello solo by Max Bruch. This is followed by Mozart’s exquisite “Kegelstatt” Trio, K. 498 (arranged for cello rather than viola). Brahms’ soulful Cello Sonata in E minor, op. 38, and Beethoven’s youthful Trio in B-flat Major, op. 11 conclude this magical evening!
