World famous violinist at Gates Hall this Friday

The Oak Park Alumni Association invites the community to attend a free Christian concert featuring Jaime Jorge, a world-class violinist.

The concert will feature music ranging from favorite hymns to contemporary praise songs. Jorge has played in a multitude of settings from high school auditoriums to Carnegie Hall. He has presented concerts in 40 countries on five continents and has released 16 albums.

Besides being an accomplished musician, Jorge has an inspiring story to share. Born and raised in communist Cuba, he was offered many opportunities—including offers 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 10, miraculously, his family was given the opportunity to leave the country and come to the United States.

In 1996, Jaime left medical school and a promising career in medicine to devote himself to full-time music ministry. The concert is free and is designed for people of all ages and denominations. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, call 515-450-0262.
