About Jaime Jorge
UBC is pleased to welcome Jaime Jorge (pronounced Jamie George) to our 6th annual Glory to the King Christmas Service on Dec 16th in both hours of worship! Jaime is a very gifted violinist who also has an inspiring story to share.
Jaime began playing the violin at the age of five. Born and raised in communist Cuba, he was given many opportunities-including an offer 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, miraculously, his family was 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 and teacher Cyrus Forough. But Jaime dreamed of being a missionary doctor, and in 1994 he entered the University of Illinois School of Medicine. In 1996, he left medical school and a promising medical to follow God’s call to devote his life to full-time music ministry.
Since 1988 he has traveled over 6 million air miles and has played on 6 continents and in over 80 countries (he’s waiting for an invitation to play for penguins in Antarctica to visit all 7 continents). He has recorded and released 17 albums. We welcome Jaime to UBC!
