The Ross County Ministerial Association is sponsoring a free concert with world renowned violinist, Jaime Jorge at the Majestic Theater on Dec. 17th.

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 career to devote his life 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 (6 Continents in all and over 70 countries). He has recorded and released 17 albums.

The concert, titled "Silent Night, Holy Night" will begin at 6:00 p.m.
