Born: March 10, 1986
Award-winning jazz pianist Justin Kauflin, though the middle of 5 children, was never lost in the crowd. His talent, obvious as early as age 2, was nurtured with classical training in violin and piano. From age 6, he began performing in concerts, home visits and weddings, eventually becoming concertmaster for several orchestras.
However, it was during this time that he also endured numerous trials, particularly when he lost total vision by a rare eye disease.
'Be Thou My Vision' is a meaningful choice for Kauflin, who has been blind since the age of 11. He brings new meaning to the hymn, re-harmonizing it and igniting it with impassioned playing. - Dean Christeson, RVA Jazz...
