The Sedalia Seventh-day Adventist Church invites community members to attend a free Christian concert featuring Jaime Jorge, a world-class violinist, at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17. 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 played in 60 countries on six continents and has released 17 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 great musicians, only if he and his family would renounce their belief in God. They refused. When Jorge was 10, his family was given the opportunity to leave the country.
In 1996, Jorge left medical school and a promising medical career to devote himself to full-time music ministry.
The concert will be hosted at the Sedalia Seventh-day Adventist Church at 29525 U.S. Highway 50 in Sedalia. The concert is free and is designed for people of all ages and denominations. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 660-826-8951.
