Jaime Jorge, Christian Concert Violinist, Speaks and Performs at Gold Canyon United Methodist Church
Jaime Jorge will be performing and speaking on Sunday, November 20, in the Sanctuary for the 8:00 & 9:30 AM Traditional Services. He will also speak and play for the 10:50 AM Praise Service in the Koinonia Room. Jaime will then be featured in concert at 3:00 pm playing a variety of music on violin.
Jaime began playing the violin at the age of five. Born and raised in communist Cuba, he was given many opportunities – including offers to study in Moscow with some of the greatest musicians of our time – if only he and his family would renounce their belief in God. They refused. When Jaime was ten, he and his family were miraculously given the opportunity to leave the country.
They came to the United States, where Jaime received a Christian education and violin lessons with eminent violinist Cyrus Forough. But Jaime dreamed of being a missionary doctor, and in 1994, was accepted by University of Illinois School of Medicine. In 1996, he left medical school and a a promising medical career to devote himself to full-time music ministry.
Since 1988 he has traveled over 6 million air miles and has played in North, Central and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa – 40 countries in 6 continents! He has recorded and released 17 albums.
Of course, everyone is invited to hear him speak at all three of the morning services. The afternoon concert is also open to the public at no charge as a free will offering will be received. Everyone is asked to please bring at least one non-perishable food item per person for the Gold Canyon United Methodist Food Bank.
