Kalina Mrmevska: Organist, Joyful Noise and Senior Choir Choirmaster
Kalina Mrmevska arrived at Caroline Church just in time to play for our Ash Wednesday service of March 2019.

Baptism by fire, so to speak, but she managed a twenty-minute rehearsal with the choir and got us through an unfamiliar service with poise and grace. She continues to learn more about our service and has been rehearsing with the choir ever since.

Kalina comes to us from North Macedonia which is a country just east of Albania, south of Dardania (Kosova), and north of Greece. Her family lived in Shkup (Skopje), the capital. She speaks Macedonian, although the country is bi-lingual and has two official languages: Albanian and Macedonian. Kalina’s mother was a piano teacher and at the age of 4, Kalina took an avid interest in the piano and began formal lessons.

At the age of 21, she received a scholarship to study at the University for Music and Theatre in Hamburg, Germany. Upon completing her studies, she had earned her Master’s degree through a combination of work done in Shkup (Skopje) and Hamburg.

Kalina also received a Doctorate degree in Music Performance - Piano, in 2018, from Stony Brook University. She served as an adjunct professor of music while in attendance at Stony Brook University.

Currently she is working full time at the School of Mahanaim in Huntington, teaching piano to the Korean college students in attendance there. Prior to joining us at Caroline Church, Kalina also served as organist and choir director at Bellport United Methodist Church.

Kalina is currently leading the Senoir Choir, Joyful Noise Choir, directs the music program, and plays the organo during services.
