A MUSICIAN is holding a concert in aid of the Stroke Association after being inspired by the support they gave his father.

Fabricio Brachetta, a composer and musical conductor, decided to raise funds for the charity after seeing first hand the work it does.

Mr Brachetta, 39, of Chaffinch Road, Beckenham, said: “My father had had a stroke at the age of 43 and when I was growing up it was very difficult for him and the whole family.

“Turning 40 this year has really opened my eyes to how young he was. Stoke can happen to anyone.

“My main goal is to help people find out about stroke. I have always wanted to do something to help the cause.”

The London Arte Chamber Orchestra will perform Mozart’s clarinet concerto in St Gabriel’s Church in Warwick Square, Plimlico on Saturday January 28.

Tickets cost £15 (£12 for concessions) and are available from ticketline.co.uk/london-arte-chamber-orchestra or by calling 07765 228112.

Tickets will also be available on the night.
