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.

Concerts for the Chipping Sodbury Music Society are performed in the historic setting of

Chipping Sodbury Town Hall

"I want to thank you once again for making our first visit to the Chipping Sodbury Music Society such an enjoyable experience last night.  The hall set-up, piano and general ambiance were impeccable.. . . . It goes without saying that we would love to return sometime"

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

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

     Jonathan Taylor      -   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".
