Jaime played in the New York City Ballet Orchestra and the American Ballet Theater Orchestra. He played in the pit for the original Broadway production of A Chorus Line --I believe for most if not all of its 6000+ performances! Jaime strongly believed that music has the power to change the world significantly for the better. Inspired partly by El Sistema in Venezuela and partly by Quincy Jones, Jaime drafted the online petition urging President Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. Read about Jaime and the petition on Quincy Jones' website: http://www.quincyjones.com/archives/894 Jaime raised three children who became wonderful musicians --I've had the priviledge of playing with them. He always encouraged me in my musical endeavors, even --maybe especially-- when I was struggling. His belief in life and in the power of music continue to be an inspiration.
