Mark Krey began working for Saint Paulus Lutheran Church as the Music Director in the Fall of 2018. Mark’s love affair with music began as a small child singing in his Father’s church in Coney Island. Singing continued to be a central part of his life all through grade school and even into college. Studying under the late Gary Gardner, Mark received a BA in Musical Theater from the Ray Bolger Musical Theater Program at UCLA. Gary always used to ask Mark “Why do you want to be an actor? Actors lead such superficial lives! You should do music ministry. That would suit you!” Mark went on to play Lord Evelyn Oakley his senior year in “Anything Goes” directed by Gary Gardner. Sadly, Gary passed away shortly after Mark graduated. Mark’s an avid songwriter and composer. He released 2 EPs (2013/2015) as well as an LP in 2018. His favorite thing to do is spend time with his girlfriend Bianca. He loves being with his family and lives to be creative.
