Seventh-day Adventist Church to host violinist

November 07, 2012

Violinist Jaime Jorge will perform in concert Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at the Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Jorge’s mastery of the violin has delighted audiences around the globe. He has dedicated his talents to sharing his love of God through sacred and classical concerts and special appearances the world over.

For more than two decades, through 15 albums and more than 2,500 concerts in North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia, Jorge’s music has touched the lives of millions.

The concert is free.

Born in Cuba in 1970, he began violin studies at age 5. When he was 10, his family immigrated to the United States and he began lessons with the eminent violinist Cyrus Forough, a student of the great David Oistrakh.

His mother wanted him to be a violinist, but he dreamed of becoming a missionary doctor. When he entered college in 1988, he began to take all the pre-med courses to prepare to go to medical school. In 1992, he was accepted into the University of Illinois Medical School, but into his second year of medical school, he felt the call to leave medical school for a life of service dedicated to music ministry.

The church is at 11507 Robinwood Drive in Hagerstown.
