Our  Patron - Trevor Herbert


 

We are delighted to welcome our new Patron, Trevor Herbert, who will be taking over from Jack Russell in time for our 70th Anniversary celebrations next season.  It has been a pleasure to work with Jack and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his support.

 


Trevor is well-known locally for his association with Hobbs House Bakery but also has a long-standing interest in music, particularly choral works.  He is currently a member of Stroud Choral Society and performs with them regularly.  Trevor and his family have supported our Society for many years and we look forward to enjoying a future of listening to great music together.

Patrick Smith


 

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Patrick Smith aged 89 years.

 

Patrick was Chairman, member and keen supporter of Chipping Sodbury Music Society for several years. 

 

He lead a varied and interesting life and amongst his greatest experiences as a dentist, he was for several years dentist to Rudolf Hess.

 

We will miss him very much

The Ardeton String Ensemble



  Established in 2002, the Ardeton Ensemble combines talented string players with a passion for chamber music and a creative flair for session playing.


  On the concert platform they give lively and energetic performances of mainstream repertoire and the more unusual, where their individual personalities and styles come to the fore. In the studio they bring an eclectic taste and experience which allows them to create the perfect sounds in any situation. Highly educated and widely experienced, electric performances with sparkly instruments aren't their thing - full-toned, expressive playing on quality acoustic instruments is.


  The ensemble has performed across the UK and beyond. They have appeared in concert for various music societies and festivals including a tour of Norway, and are frequently rebooked by public demand. As session strings they have appeared on Sky, BBC and ITV, have played on film soundtracks, and can be heard with a variety of contemporary artists on the radio around the world, as well as summer festival appearences - check out our storefront below or search us on Spotify.

Carismático Tango Band


  Enjoy a night of Tango Nuevo and musical virtuosity with Carismático.


  Carismático is the brainchild of Karen Street who is known as one of the UK’s leading accordionists. She was contacted by Argentinian composer and pianist, Saul Cosentino, back in 2016 asking her to look at some of his compositions. This led Karen to create her ideal Tango band to perform his brilliant, emotionally charged compositions. She has added to the group’s repertoire with arrangements of classic Astor Piazzolla and her own creative and nuanced compositions.


     karen street - accordion


     andy tweed - saxophones


     yshani perinpanayagam - piano


     rob millett - percussion


     dave manington - bass



  "Having my own Tango Band is something I have thought of creating for many years. By chance Argentinian Composer and Pianist, Saúl Cosentino made contact and very generously sent me some of his music to play. I was so enthused I knew I had to finally put together my ideal Tango Band to play his music, explore other Tango inspired composers and write for the band myself".
