Inspirations: Alex Stobbs' Passion
Alex Stobbs is an extrordinary young musician. His struggle with cystic fibrosis has not reduced his passion for music, nor for aspiring to the highest standards of performance. His story is truly inspirational.
Alex was the subject of Channel 4's memorable documentary, 'A Boy Called Alex' where we watched him as a schoolboy fulfil his long-held ambition to conduct Bach's Magnificat. Now a choral scholar at King's College, Cambridge, he's on track to pull off the double - a performance of The St Matthew Passion ('all three hours of it!' he says) - with the Rudolphus Choir and the Southbank Sinfonia on the 5th April 2009 in London's Cadogan Hall.
The concert will raise funds for other suffers of Cystic Fibrosis. Unsurprisingly, it's is sold out, but you can still show support by making a donation.
