CONTRIBUTING MUSICIANS AND ARTISTS
An incredibly gifted musician, currently studying at the Royal College of Music, Alex Stobbs has undertaken the enormous challenge of producing material for this concert that is based on the work of Chopin.
It is believed that the great genius Chopin perished at a relatively early age from cystic fibrosis. Alex, who similarly struggles with cystic fibrosis, has dedicated himself to raising awareness and funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust who are pioneering research and treatment into this terrible disease.
