30 July 2015 - Jaime Jorge Concert
See Jaime Jorge LIVE in Orange! "This is not just a concert. This is an event!"
Jaime Jorge! His forceful, expressive mastery of the violin has delighted audiences around the globe. Born in Cuba in 1970, Jaime began violin studies at age five. When he was ten, Jaime’s family immigrated to the United States and he began lessons with the eminent violinist Cyrus Forough, a student of the great David Oistrakh. Jaime’s mom wanted him to be a violinist, but he dreamed of becoming a medical doctor. When he entered college in 1988, he began to take all the pre-med courses necessary in order to prepare to go to Medical School. In 1993, Jaime was accepted into the University Of Illinois School of Medicine, but into his second year, Jaime felt impressed to leave in order to use his musical talents to share with others.
From High School auditoriums to the Crystal Cathedral, from simple church programs to Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center, Jaime’s music inspires, uplifts, and brings peace. Whether teaching a workshop/Master Class, as a university instructor, or as a performer playing for as many as 60,000 people, Jaime touches people’s hearts, and all are drawn to this young man and his violin. For over 25 years, through 17 albums and more than 2,500 concerts in 6 continents and over 50 countries, Jaime’s music has touched the lives of millions. It will touch yours too.
Note: We will not have all the lighting effects or orchestra as shown in the videos, as this is a small venue! Paper (plastic) money donation will be invited on entry.
