Julia Hwang, a brilliant young violinist who has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, has become an Ambassador for BRACE.

At just 20, Julia is already a recording artist of international renown and now studies at Cambridge University. She has been a friend and supporter of this charity since her days as a student at Clifton College in Bristol, during whch time - aged 17 - she took part in a concert at St George's in support of BRACE. Please visit her website for more information about Julia's music.

Julia said she was delighted to be joining BRACE as an Ambassador. She said, “Dementia has affected my family and is one of the biggest health issues of our time; it’s vital that we keep the money flowing towards research. It is a great honour to have been asked to become an Ambassador for the charity and I look forward to helping them in any way I can over the coming years.”

Julia has marked her new role by organising a concert at her college in Cambridge next week in which she will perform with other top musicians. Tickets are still available.

BRACE Chief Executive Mark Poarch said Julia would be a real asset to the charity. He said, “To have someone of Julia’s talent and status join us as an Ambassador is fantastic. Hopefully she can help us raise our profile yet further and continue our mission to fund vital dementia research.”
