Born in Cuba, Jorge has traveled around the world sharing the love of Jesus through music and testimony. As a child in Cuba, Jorge studied violin, a passion supported by his mother, who made plastic flowers to sell to raise funds for her son’s lessons. When he was 10, Jaime’s family came to the United States, and he began lessons with the eminent violinist Cyrus Forough.
Throughout the performance, Jorge shared favorite Scripture passages and his thoughts on his faith, his life, and his music.
“Music is a gift from God which I use to reach others,” he told the audience, who enjoyed arrangements of such songs as “I Surrender All” and a sampling of musical traditions from around the world.
Jorge was introduced by instructor of violin Matthew Mantell, who also serves as director of Trinity’s String Ensemble. Music students and other guests had the opportunity to meet Jorge following the concert.
